Desi,

Earthquakes are quite common and on a daily basis - from what I've been told - so I would not be worried at all!

As veritas posted..... just enough to shake the ice in his glass LOL!!!

Had no electric in most of central Bavaro all day outside of the resorts so there's the 3rd thing no need to worry anymore.(had to drink all the presidente in my fridge to save it getting warm so not all bad)

I was at Macao at that time and felt absolutely nothing....nada.

The epicenter was located about 48 miles northeast of where I was enjoying lunch.

There is a ridge where the tremor occurred. The depth of the water there is a little over 17,000 feet!

It is a regular occurrence to get earth movement in the region....nothing unusual.

Cheers
