Dear Teachers:

This is a notice of the earthquake that occurred today (Thursday)
within the lithosphere that has been subducted beneath the eastern
edge of the Caribbean plate. Due to the great depth (145 km) the
surface wave are not a prominent feature of the seismogram. Rather
than an attachment, I've posted the information
here: http://jclahr.com/science/psn/as1/windward07/index.html

This event should have been well recorded on all operating seismic systems.

Cheers,

John Lahr
