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?
