pushed under as S America rolls."

Earthquakes of the Caribbean: 1918 - 2019
The M6.0 earthquake that occurred near Puerto Rico on September 24, 2019, was the largest earthquake to strike the U.S. territory in five years. It was not, however, the largest recorded earthquake there. That distinction goes to the July 7, 1943, M7.7 earthquake that thankfully did not generate a tsunami. Other earthquakes, and sometimes the landslides they cause, have produced tsunamis throughout the Caribbean Sea region, including one in Puerto Rico in 1918. Therefore this animation begins in 1918 and covers the 101 years up until the present day to show all of the recorded seismic activity in this region over that time period.*
The Caribbean Sea lies over the Caribbean Plate, a section of the earth’s crust bounded by active faults separating it from other tectonic plates. These other plates include the North American Plate to the north and east and the Pacific Plate to the west. Relative motions between these plates cause earthquakes at their boundaries. Most of the east-west trending boundaries are “strike-slip” or transform faults such that the plates move past each other horizontally, similar to the famous San Andreas Fault in California. Since they move sideways they do not generally cause earthquakes that move the ocean water above them, though they can trigger landslides that generate tsunamis, such as in Haiti in 2010. But the boundaries of the Caribbean Plate that run northwest-southeast in Central America and the Leeward Islands are subduction zones, a type of plate boundary that can produce megathrust earthquakes with large vertical motions that can cause devastating tsunamis, such as the pair of devastating Dominican Republic earthquakes in 1946.
Some earthquakes in this region that produced significant tsunamis include:
Oct 11, 1919 -- M7.1 -- Puerto Rico (tsunami killed 140)
Aug 5, 1946 -- M7.5-- Dominican Republic (tsunami killed 1790)
Aug 8, 1946 -- M7.0 -- Dominican Republic (tsunami killed 75)
Apr 22, 1991 -- M 7.6 -- Costa Rica (tsunami killed 3)
Sep 2, 1992 -- M7.7 -- Nicragua (tsunami killed 170 on the Pacific coast)
Jan 12, 2010 -- M7.0 -- Haiti (tsunami killed 7)
Aug 27, 2012 -- M7.3 -- El Salvador (Pacific Coast, no deaths)
Today the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) will issue tsunami alerts for any potentially tsunami-causing earthquake in the Caribbean region. These will be posted to:

A strange phenomenon appeared in the sky of Tunapuna, a town in the East–West Corridor of the island of Trinidad, in Trinidad and Tobago. Could this be a large gas release as South America rolls over the Caribbean plate? Hmm.
"It was filmed Thursday 31st October, 2019 at approximately 1pm in Tunapuna." Rodney Mc Lean

The roads of the provinces of Mariscal Luzuriaga, Sihuas, Carlos Fermín Fitzcarrald, Pomabamba and Antonio Raimondi in the Ancash region are blocked by the fall of huaicos in different points of the roads, according to information from the Regional Emergency Operations Center (COER ) in Huaraz.

01/01/2020 Landslide captured by tourists at "Cañón del Sumidero" Chiapas MX.
A wall of the Sumidero Canyon suffered a landslide on Wednesday afternoon.
The phenomenon was captured by tourists sailing on the Grijalva River, so they suspended the route...
... The collapse forced the preventive closure of tourist navigation on the tributary, authorities said.
Experts from the State Secretariat of Civil Protection and the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas (Conanp) will go to the area this Thursday to make the first evaluations and determine the causes of the event.

A Mag 7.7 Quake @ South of Cuba:
Havana 28 Jan 2020 - 21:13 CET
Although there are no precise reports on tsunami warnings so far, geologist Christa Von Hillebrant-Andrade of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the United States told the Puerto Rican newspaper El Nuevo Día that "there is potential for Tsunami threat to all points that are 300 kilometers from the epicenter. "
"We are reviewing the impact potential in Cuba," he said.
According to the USGS, so far there are reports of perceptibility of the earthquake in the Cayman Islands, The Bahamas, Cuba, Honduras and Jamaica.
On the other hand, Cuban users of social networks claimed to have felt the telluric movement in Guantanamo, Santiago de Cuba, Granma, Holguin, Las Tunas, Camaguey, Cienfuegos, Havana, Pinar del Río and Isla de la Juventud.
On twitter, Cubans begin to report several places where the earthquake was noticeable. In addition to the provinces mentioned by the aforementioned media, there are reports of perceptibility in Ciego de Ávila, Cienfuegos and Camagüey.
A replica of 6.9 degrees has been registered in Santiago de Cuba.
