Monday, November 21, 2005 The Seismic Research Unit confirmed reports of a felt earthquake near Dominica and a separate event near Saint Lucia on November 17th and November 19th, respectively.

Dominica - On Thursday, November 17th at 1:56AM local time an earthquake of magnitude 3.3 was felt in northern Dominica.

Saint Lucia - On Saturday, November 19th at 10:36PM local time, an earthquake of magnitude 3.3 was felt in Saint Lucia.

These events are unrelated. For updates on these and other geologic events in the Eastern Caribbean please visit the SRU website at ww.uwiseismic.com
