It must have been an earthquake.

I am thinking that it must have been some kind of earth tremor or something that I just experienced.I was just here sitting when I felt dizzy.I was assuming that I may have been ill until i saw the table and chairs moving....now i have never experienced an earth shake before and although Trinidad has had them many times before i can't think of when Barbados would have experienced something of this nature...i guess i will soon find out.....

and here are a few things I didn't know......

The last time that Barbados experienced tremors was 1947,now I knew nothing about that but i had the eerie feeling that it had happened sometime before.Apparently we can expect some more of that in the future...

I think what people were thinking about,and what had them scared was the recent apartment collapse in Brittons Hill and the Kick 'em Jenny underwater volcano.

Within a few weeks, a seismic monitoring station will be established in Barbados at Gun Hill, St George, as part of a wider tsunami early warning system to be established across the region.
Attorney General Dale Marshall signed a memorandum of agreement with the United States Ambassador to Barbados, Mary Kramer, Monday afternoon for the establishment of the station.
While that facility will be in place within a matter of weeks, the entire tsunami warning system is expected to be completed between by mid to early 2007.
