A MAJOR earthquake has struck in the Caribbean Sea, felt from the southeast part of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, thru all of Belize, in a small portion of Guatemala, all of Honduras and almost half of Nicaragua, as well as southern Cuba, all of the Cayman Islands and most of Jamaica.  It also triggered a TSUNAMI ALERT.

The very strong quake struck at 9:51 PM eastern US time at a very shallow depth of 10km and spawned a TSUNAMI ALERT issued by the NWS Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.  After further analysis of the quake data, that Tsunami advisory was cancelled.  Here's the cancellation notice:
