A preliminary report from the earthquake Unit has confirmed that a 3.9 magnitude jolted the island at 9:29 pm.

The intensity of the quake was felt in Kingston, St Andrew and St Catherine.

 

The Earthquake Unit said the epicentre of the quake was located  approximately 10km West of Moore Town, Portland., and had a depth of 9km.

 

There was no report of any damage as a result of the quake.

 

It's the third minor earthquake to have hit Jamaica in just over a month. In early September, the island was jolted by a 5.2 magnitude earthquake, and about two weeks later the island was hit yet again by a tremor, with a magnitude of 4.6.
