Magnitude-5.8 quake rattles Trinidad, nearby islands

An earthquake has rattled Trinidad and Tobago and nearby Caribbean islands but there have been no immediate reports of significant damage or injuries.

The 5.8 magnitude quake hit late Tuesday afternoon and was felt widely in the twin-island republic off the coast of Venezuela. It was also felt in the neighboring islands of Grenada and St. Vincent.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the temblor was centered about 15 miles (25 kilometers) southwest off the city of Scarborough on the island of Tobago. It had a depth of roughly 21 miles (35 kilometers).
