M 7.7 Earthquake Cuba Region

last updated 29 January 2020, 9:18 UTC

On 28 January 2020 a major earthquake occurred in Cuba Region. The tremor occurred at 19:10 UTC and had an estimated moment magnitude of 7.7.

Two days earlier a major earthquake warning was issued because of very critical planetary and lunar geometry on the 26th and 27th, which was expected to end an extended magnitude 7 drought of more than six months. Just as in 2017 and 2018, such a drought was likely to end with a high 7 to 8+ magnitude earthquake. An additional warning specifically for a M 7.7+ earthquake was issued in social media about 24 hours before the major earthquake occurred.
