PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad ( CMC ) – An earthquake with a magnitude of 4.2 rattled parts of the capital late on Sunday night, but there were no reports of damage or injury.

The Trinidad-based Seismic Research Centre (SRC) of the St Augustine campus of the University of the West Indies said that the quake, which occurred at 11.18 pm (local time) was also felt in Venezuela.

It said that the quake, which is the latest in the series of tremors to rattle several Caribbean countries in recent days, was located Latitude: 10.50N, Longitude: 62.61W and at a depth of 93 kilometres (km).
