Earthquake in jamaica

Posted by The New N Used Link Team on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 Under: Jamaica

Jamaica is due to experience an earthquake on the same scale as one that sank a section of Port Royal more than 300 years ago, according to the Earthquake Unit at the University of the West Indies.

There have been some calculations about 144 years after the 1904, some about 84 (years), but it's really not accurate It is believed that there are cycles but no one knows the recurrent intervals. Some calculations have been done based on the history of earthquakes, so any calculations that have been done or any recurrent interval that is calculated is just based on a short history. i believe jamaica is not prepared to manage anything of the magnitude that hit the island in 1692, which claimed the lives of more than 3,000 people. Also on the 10th of February 2013 about 6:05 on the western end of Jamaica felt three tremors so only time will tell as to how serious it will get.
