Offices evacuate in Miami after 7.7 Caribbean quake rattles city

Residents and workers evacuated buildings in Miami on Tuesday (January 28) after a powerful magnitude 7.7 earthquake struck in the sea south of Cuba, rattling the Florida city.

There were no immediate reports of damage in Miami, but local television aired images of groups of people gathered outside of buildings.

The epicenter of the quake was between Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and Cuba, at a shallow depth of 6.2 miles (10 km).

Tsunami waves reaching 0.3 (1 foot) to 1 meter (3 feet) above the tide level were possible for coastal parts of Belize, Cuba, Honduras, Mexico, the Cayman Islands and Jamaica, it said.
