T&T rocked by powerful earthquake

Trinidad and Tobago was rocked by a powerful earthquake around 5.45 p.m. Tuesday, which the Seismic Research Unit at the University of the West Indies said was a 6.2 on the Richter Scale.


Citizens  immediately took to social media saying the shake-up was the worst most of them had ever felt.

The location of the ‘quake was given as Latitude: 11.04N and Longitude: 60.70W, with a origin depth of 29 kilometres, with its centre closer to Scarborough, Tobago.

It was felt 16 km SSE of Scarborough, 78 km NE of Arima and 99 km NE of Port of Spain.

In Port of Spain, people still at work in high rise buildings – which swayed and rattled as the ‘quake progressed – vacated the premises right after, fearful of aftershocks.

On Facebook, citizens in various parts of Trinidad reported feeling “a huge earthquake”, with some reporting that their pets showed signs of anxiety right before the event.

    From the looks of it on the USGS map, all over the earth is experiencing these earthquakes and rapidly every couple of hours. Volcanic eruptions and rising sea levels too. Things will begin to get even more intense with the weather pattern too. Keep safe guys, we are in for a ride. Hope there was no loss of life.

    Planet X which is the brown dwarf twin to our sun, will be passing through our solar system on its way out from the sun on its elyptical journey back to deep space. There are four planets accompanying it. It’s been named Nemesis. One of its four planets is called Nibiru on where we humans are believed to originate by the Ananukis a far advanced form of being. The Samalians have the history. It’s tail is over 26 million miles long and lots of large asteroids ate embedded in it That entire system is already creating serious weather impacts on our planets. If you doubt me go tyo YouTube and type in Nibiru. The US government and other governments know about this. The US has built underground cities linked by electric vehicles and trains. Russia has 1700, and China has 1300. Europe two One unfer the Swiss Alps and the other under the French Alps. They are all interlinked and has entrances under all of Europe. If they release earth’s pending catastrophe there will be worldwide panic, and food shortage will occur in a flash. Go to the Nibiru site. Check it out.

    @Phil its actually 7 planets accompanying the Nemesis system, or planet X. This system appeared in the days of Noah flood and again at the first exodos of the children of israel from egpt. I was saying this same thing in an earlier post. The other big countries are preparing for this for years with their under ground bunkers which will be in vain as they will become ovens. We are in for a roller coaster ride. But we will be saved out of it, that is a fact.
