January 21, 2011 – CARIBBEAN – The 5.0 earthquake that struck Saint Kitt and Leward Islands at a depth of 163.7 km today is one more indication of the growing unrest and tension seen in the Caribbean plate as planetary tremors have intensified in frequency across the globe. The massive volcanic eruptions in the Caribbean over the last two years, the earthquakes swarms around Puerto Rico in 2010, and the massive earthquake that struck Haiti in January of 2010 are all indications that this region is destined to see more violent seismic and volcanic turbulence in the near future.
