Earth Quakes and Tropical Weather

Well Saturday morning we had an earthquake rattle the area, 6.1 at 6:40 am. I hate to admit it but Deb and I slept through it. We have heard reports of the shaking lasting up to a minute. Ruth and Ron at St. John spice had some minor damage and a little mess from some bottles of hot sauce crashing to the floor in Cruz Bay. Here is more about it at On St. John. And here is more about the quake in the St. Thomas Source.

As you can see by the Weather Channel graphic we also have a tropical system kinda parked just south of us that is producing heavy winds and rain. We also have a late season tropical storm Nana out in the Atlantic hanging out so I guess we aren't out of the woods yet for fall tropical weather.
