String of Earthquakes hit all over Dominican Republic in less than 2 weeks
(AP) A magnitude-4.7 earthquake deep below the surface has rattled some residents in the Dominican Republic but there are no reports of any injuries or damage.

 

The U.S. Geological Survey says the Sunday morning quake was centered roughly 5 miles (8 kilometers) east-southeast of San Pedro de Macoris, just east of the capital of Santo Domingo.

It occurred before dawn at a depth of about 62 miles (100 kilometers).

Authorities say the quake was felt in parts of Santo Domingo and they fielded calls from some jittery residents.

The country is located near the intersection of the Caribbean and North American tectonic plants and small and moderate quakes are frequent. Faults run under the island of Hispaniola, which is shared by the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
