Earthquake

by

That was not a truck passing by. Last Sunday Dominican Republic was hit by a 5.0 earthquake. It struck at 16:16 local time in the Mona Passage which separates our island from Puerto Rico. That is a about 40km away from where I am living.
Three local women died when a boat carrying them, Italian and Russian tourists capsized on the way back from Saona Island. All tourists were rescued. As a result of the earthquake the vessel was hit by a series of heavy waves.
