7.6 magnitude quake off coast of Honduras

Earthquake in Caribbean prompts tsunami warning; no deaths reported Powerful Earthquake in Caribbean Prompts Tsunami Warnings

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said later that the advisories had been cancelled.

The singer took to Instagram to let fans know he was safe after a massive 7.6 magnitude quake struck the Caribbean Sea off the coast of Honduras.

There are no early reports of damage on land, but the U.S. National Tsunami Warning Center warns of tsunami dangers in Puerto Rico, Jamaica, other islands and the coast of Central America.

Hazardous waves, between 0.3 meters and 1 meter above tide level, are forecast to hit Honduras and Belize.

The quake, which struck about 125 miles north of Honduras shook the mainland, but there were no early reports of serious damage or casualties. The shallowness of the epicenter amplifies the effect of the natural disaster. The northern coast of Honduras closest to the quake's epicenter is sparsely populated, with much of it covered by nature reserves. Some people in the capital of Tegucigalpa said they did not feel the tremor.

Honduran President Juan Orlando tweeted, "In face of the natural disaster registered in our country, we have activated the emergency system, please remain calm, report any emergency to @ 911Honduras".

Hector Pesquera, Puerto Rico's public safety secretary, said that authorities were monitoring the coastlines of 46 municipalities on the US territory and that police were patrolling certain areas as a backup.

There have been no immediate reports of damage or injuries, however, this is an ongoing story and more will be available as information is released.
