These earth tremors, perceived mainly in this province and neighboring Guantanamo, had magnitudes of 4.2 to 6.0 and have kept people worried in this eastern region, where a tremor in the nearby Caribbean nation was strongly felt on Saturday morning.

Specialists from the National Seismological Service and its station network, distributed nationwide, are keeping a close watch on these events and also reported a 6.9-magnitude tremor in Alaska.

The CENAIS technical deputy director, Dr. Enrique Arango, wrote on his Facebook account that the initial perceptibility corresponded to the impact of the earthquake in Haiti, extended to Cuban territory, something that people tend to consider aftershocks when they were not.

Arango stated that this process can last weeks, and in correspondence with the magnitude of the earth tremors in areas neighboring the epicenter of the main event, they will or will not be felt by people in both eastern provinces.
