A magnitude 6.0 earthquake hit off the southeastern coast of Cuba early Thursday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
The quake was centered 77 miles north of Montego Bay, Jamaica, and 370 miles southeast of Havana, Cuba. It hit at 4:43 a.m.
Forty-three minutes earlier, a magnitude 6.2 earthquake rumbled off the east coast of Japan, the USGS reported.  No tsunami warning was issued.
Both quakes were shallow, striking at a depth of six miles.
And seven minutes before the Japan quake, a magnitude 6.0 quake was recorded off the coast of New Zealand, according to the USGS.

The magnitude of the Cuba quake was downgraded significantly later in the day --- it ended up a 5.1 or something which is much different and far less dangerous.

So many Earthquakes nowadays, cause we keep drilling for oil in between the plates and removing the lubrication from between the plates. It is like metal on metal friction that is causing all these quakes. If we stopped drilling for oil from beneath the earths crust we would have less earthquakes around the world and we would be saving our planet from the inside out...

When the F* are the oil companies going to realize this.....
