Earthquake 1665892 1920

With the recent Tsunami warning given to the Caribbean earlier this week, it was a stark reminder that Hurricanes are not the only potential threat to the Turks & Caicos.

The DDME have recently been running drills to ensure those of us living and working in the islands are prepared in the event of an earthquake and recently shared this 7 point action list which should be taken on seriously going forward.

They stated that.

When an Earthquake Strikes will you be Prepared? Having a Plan in place before and earthquake strikes goes a long way to keeping your family safe.

Earthquakes are caused by a sudden, rapid shaking of the earth caused by the breaking and shifting of rock beneath the earth’s surface. They can strike suddenly, without warning and occur at any time of the year and at any time of the day or night.
