St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The all-clear was sounded after a tsunami threat to the Caribbean and Central America Tuesday due to a magnitude 7.6 earthquake just 27 miles off the coast of Honduras.

The earthquake occurred at a depth of 10 kilometers east of Great Swan island, Honduras.

The threat raised questions about the warning system in place in the federation of St Kitts and Nevis.

In assessing our own preparedness for such an event WINN FM spoke to Superintendent Lyndon David, who is the liaison between the Police Force and NEMA. He assists in coordinating tsunami warnings.

Tsunami waves can travel unnoticed at high speed -over 800 kilometers or 500 miles per hour at the deepest point of the water but the slow as they near the shore to around 30 -50 kilometers per hour or 20-30 mph. The energy of the wave's speed is transferred to height and sheer force as it nears shore.
