    Aruba does share the same tectonic plate as Hispaniola

    Imo, the waves are more likely weather related. We had extremely high waves on the 29th. It was due to a cold front coming through the Caribbean.

    My husband, cats, dog and parrot all slept thru the earthquake.

    The surf has been rough lately because we have been getting some
    much needed rain. Yesterday it rained and we got a 'good' rain at least
    two times in the beginning of the week.

    If you are looking at the 'rough surf' on awe24 - it's taken at a spot
    where the ocean hits the rock a lot. Not an uncommon experience
    there.

    Yesterday it was calm in the am and then got rougher and it rained.
    But all the boats were out yesterday so there must have not
    been any 'big' advisories on the sea conditions.

    There were no marine advisories yesterday and none again today.

    "SEAS:3 TO 7 FEET"

    Seaquake hits Aruba
    13 Jan, 2010, 07:11 (GMT -04:00)

    ORANJESTAD — Aruba was startled by a seaquake with a force of 4.2 on the Richter scale at four-fourteen this morning. The epicenter was registered at a depth of 12.2 kilometers under sea level, at a distance of 41 kilometers south of Aruba and 4 kilometers north-east of Cabo San Roman on the peninsula of Paraguana, Venezuela.

    The meteorological service of the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba had received this information from the Venezuelan seismological service Funvisis. The quake was felt in various parts of the island. People had taken to the streets, visited relatives and phoned the police. However, until now there had been no reports on material damage by the seaquake, according to police spokesperson Papito Comenencia, although Nieuwssite Awe24.com had reported on cracks in a few houses. According to witnesses, there had been a question of a fierce wind after the quake. Many of them had described the quake as the sensation and the sound of an approaching huge lorry. Others had declared they had not felt one, but two quakes.

    Premier addresses population
    Premier Mike Eman (AVP) had held a speech at five o’clock this morning on radio station Canal 90. He indicated the quake had awakened him and he had immediately contacted the Minister of Finance, Utilities, Communication and Energy, Mike de Meza (AVP). At that moment, Eman had not been certain whether the quake was related to the earthquake in Haiti yesterday afternoon or if it had come from the direction of Venezuela, which is often the case. The Premier had used the opportunity to express his sympathy on the radio to the Haitian residents of Aruba. He also announced that he had had contact with the Dutch consulate in Haiti as to how Aruba could help.

    Seismologists in Venezuela register minor quakes in the Caribbean region on a daily basis, according to the meteorological service. The last notable reports for Aruba go back to September last year, when a quake of 6.4 on the Richter scale had been registered on Curaçao. A quake of 3.1 on the Richter scale had been registered in the eastern part of Aruba in May as well. On that same day, St. Maarten had registered a quake of four on the Richter scale.
