Magnitude 7.6 quake strikes off Central America

An quake in the Caribbean Sea Tuesday night was felt along the southern coastline, into Quintana Roo.

The quake was felt across northern Central America, prompting a tsunami warning in Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean Islands, but little damage and no casualties have been reported.

Officials in Honduras said shaking was registered across much of the nation and there were some reports of cracks in homes in Colon and Atlantida provinces along the northern coast and Olancho in eastern Honduras.

Tsunami advisories were canceled overnight for Puerto Rico and other parts of the Caribbean after a powerful natural disaster struck in the Caribbean Sea.

No tsunami warning was immediately issued.

Honduras activated emergency system, ask people to remain calm: President Juan Orlando Hernandez.

The tsunami warning were in effect for two hours and then the advisories were withdrawn. The tremor was about 25 miles (44 kilometers) from Honduras' Swan Islands, which are unpopulated except for small navy post.

Brad was at his vacation rental in Cancun when the tremor, which is reportedly one of the largest to hit the Caribbean in modern times, shook the building.

Rempel reported himself safe on Wednesday (Jan. 10), revealing that he was staying in Cancun when the natural disaster occurred and could still feel the effects, even though he was just over 400 miles away from Honduras. The 2010 quake that devastated Haiti was magnitude 7.0.
