The Office of Disaster Management can confirm a burst of felt earthquake events from about 10.00pm last night.

 

This is all part of small earthquake swarms in the South of Dominica occurring since December 2018.

 

Few felt events have been reported during that period but there has been intensification over night.

 

The seismic research unit, which is responsible for earthquake monitoring through out the Caribbean, has been contacted and an Official report will be provided.

 

There is no cause for alarm at this point.

 

Dominica went through similar events between 1998 and 2000 in the South.
