加拉加斯,委内瑞拉-委内瑞拉东北海岸周三发生强烈余震,这是100多年来最强烈的大发地震,袭击了该地区,但官员们说,显然由于地震的深度,没有造成重大损失或死亡。 根据美国地质调查局的数据,星期二的7.3级地震是自1900以来委内瑞拉最大的一次地震。但是,在地球表面下76英里(123公里)的深处,即使在距离加勒比海东部的加勒比海半岛几英里的震中附近,它似乎也只造成了有限的破坏。 周三上午9:27(格林尼治时间1327)的5.8级余震中心也相对较深,在地表以下61英里(98公里)。首都的感觉很轻微。< / P> 加州理工学院的地震学家露西·琼斯说,震动的确会在一定距离内消失。她还补充说,相当深的地震可能避免了一场悲剧。 在Cumana,地震中心附近最大的城市,超市货架星期二倒塌。 在委内瑞拉首都加拉加斯市中心,未完工的大卫大厦顶层的混凝土掉到人行道上,迫使员关闭交通。一个街区之外,戴着手术口罩的孩子们逃离一栋为患癌儿童提供基础的建筑物后,伸长脖子凝视着这座620英尺(190米)的建筑物。 地震发生时,玛丽塞拉·洛佩兹和她的7岁女儿在基金会工作,她说:“我们感到有种强烈的感觉,他们告诉每个人要跑。” 大卫塔的建造始于1990年,标志着欧佩克国家成为地区金融中心的雄心。但在银行危机之后它被抛弃了,在过去的二十年里,社会主义统治已经成为城市衰败的象征,直到2015年,它一直被棚户区居民占据。

ower outages were reported across nearby Trinidad, where people ran into the street and gasped as large glass panes at one supermarket shattered and falling concrete smashed several cars.

The quake was felt as far away as Colombias capital of Bogota, where authorities briefly closed the international airport to inspect for runway damage.

The confusing moments after the quake were captured live on Venezuelan state television as Diosdado Cabello, the head of the all-powerful constitutional assembly, was delivering a speech at a march in support of the socialist governments measures aimed at countering economic crisis.

Quake! people yelled as Cabello and others looked from side to side with a mixture of laughter and concern. Its the Bolivarian revolution speaking to the world, Cabello thundered to applause.

Experts have long warned that Venezuelas cash-strapped government is ill-prepared to deal with a major natural disaster. Hospitals have scant supplies, many ambulances are idled and food and water are among goods that have disappeared in a country suffering from inflation estimated by the International Monetary Fund to reach 1 million percent this year.

The earthquake also was felt in Guyana, Barbados and Grenada.
