An earthquake of magnitude 7.7 on the Richter scale strongly shook eastern Cuba and the island of Jamaica, in addition to other points in the Caribbean such as Cancun or southern Florida, the United States Geological Survey reported on Tuesday.

The epicenter was located about 125 kilometers northwest of Lucea, Jamaica, about 10 kilometers deep. A tsunami alert was immediately launched for Jamaica, Cuba and the Cayman Islands.

At the moment, it has not been reported that the earthquake caused material damage or registered victims. But it has generated an enormous alarm in the region in which it has been felt, where buildings have been evacuated and the authorities have activated emergency plans.

Videos immediately appeared on the networks, showing the moment when the earthquake was felt.

The seismic waves were felt even in Miami, where due to the movement of the buildings in areas such as Brickell and downtown, some of the skyscrapers were evacuated. Local media images showed people on the street bewildered at what was happening.

Although no relationship has been established at the moment, this telluric movement in the Caribbean adds to the unusual seismic activity that southern Puerto Rico has suffered since last December, where serious material damage has been recorded and the land is still moving.
