    And when someone breaks our wings,
    we simply continue to fly... on a broomstick.

    Quake rattles buildings, nerves in Cayman Isles
    By Alan Markoff and Shurna Robbins
    Reuters
    Tuesday, January 19, 2010; 11:41 AM
    GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (Reuters) - Buildings and homes shook in the Cayman Islands on Tuesday as a 5.8 magnitude earthquake rattled the Caribbean hedge fund center, but there were no reports of injury or damage.

    Minor temblors are common in the region, but Cayman residents were mindful of the 7.0 earthquake that devastated much of the capital of Haiti, Port-au-Prince a week ago.

    "The whole building was rocking," said Junior Elliott, 30, who was delivering water bottles to a four-story office building near the harbor in George Town, the capital.

    Guatemala, Venezuela, Argentina earthquakes after Haiti Earthquake

    <<<SNIP>>>
    It was 6.0 on the Richter Scale and rocked Guatemala and parts of El Salvador on Monday, but no damage was reported.

    On Sunday a 6.3 earthquake was reported in the South Atlantic, just near Argentina. The Latin American Herald Tribune reports:

    <<<SNIP>>>
    There's no word if these quake events in South and Central America and the Carribean - all close to each other - are in some way related, as of this writing. But the timing alone would seem a good reason to investigate what's happening.

    btw...Grand Cayman has a lot of money..they were hard hit by Wilma and so were we in South Florida...

    I was there the year after Wilma and all their roofs and lights were great, they were rebuilt but we still had temp/bad lights and blue tarps on roofs and much destruction

    mucho money in GC....$$$$$$$$

    God Bless them...hope they are ok but I am sure they can rebuild very fast
