PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, Jun. 22, CMC – Sections of the twin island republic were rocked by a magnitude 5.3 earthquake late Friday.

The Seismic Research Centre (SRC) at the University of the West Indies St. Augustine campus reports that the tremor that occurred at 9:54 pm (local time), was felt 94 kilometres east of Carupano, Venezuela, 98 kilometres west of Port of Spain and 118 kilometres northwest of San Fernando.
