Quakes hit World Cup venues

Recently there was a news report of a quake that hit the World Cup cricket venues.

  • February 28, 2007

ANTIGUA and Trinidad, two countries that will host Cricket World Cup 2007 matches, were jolted on Tuesday by an early morning earthquake.

A quake with a magnitude of 5.1 on the open-ended Richter scale hit St John’s just prior to 06:00 local time (10:00 GMT) around the same time that Port-of-Spain was rattled by a quake with a magnitude of 4.3.

Disaster officials said there were no reports of injuries or damage.

Antigua is set to host Super Eight matches at the new Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, and Trinidad is the venue for four warm-up matches at the Frank Worrell Oval, as well as Group-B matches involving India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Bermuda.



Comment: 5.1 in the richter scale? That’s nothing. Wait for the world cup my friends, wait for the world cup!!!

Ok… that emotional outburst aside, note however that it also happened to the area where India and Sri Lanka will be meeting. Never a dull-moment this season, huh?

Passage for this Season

Philippians 2:11-13 (NIV) (12)Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, (13)for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
