UWI seismologist says aftershocks can come months later, explains reports of different magnitudes


    A number of aftershocks have been recorded since an earthquake rocked Trinidad and Tobago this afternoon, and these could very well continue for up to two years.

    According to Seismologist Dr Joan Latchman at least 7 aftershocks have been recorded, however the magnitudes were small, and so, the tremors would not have been felt.
