¡Alerta de tsunami en el Caribe!: Reportan sismo de 7.6 en Honduras

Un fuerte sismo con magnitud de 7.8 y con epicentro a 400 kilómetros de Quintana Roo se registró en el Caribe, frente a las costas de Honduras.

Chetumal, Cancún, Playa del Carmen y Felipe Carrillo Puerto fueron las localidades en las que se pudo sentir el sismo, mismas que no reportan daños, hasta el momento. "De acuerdo a nuestros parámetros preliminares de sismos, es posible que se registren olas peligrosas de tsunami en las costas situadas a menos de 1.000 kilómetros del epicentro", explicó el Centro de Alerta de Tsunamis del Pacífico.

Al cierre de esta nota dichas alertas habían sido canceladas sin que se reportara oleaje estraordinario.

El presidente Juan Orlando Hernández dijo que se activó el sistema de emergencias para evaluar si hubo víctimas o daños por el sismo.

Por su parte, el titular de la Secretaría de Gobernación (Segob), Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong, informó que hasta el momento no hay reportes de afectaciones en territorio mexicano, e indicó que continúa el monitoreo por parte de la Coordinación Nacional de Protección Civil de la Segob.

"Por favor mantener la calma, reportar cualquier emergencia y seguir todas las instrucciones" pidió el dirigente hondureño a sus conciudadanos. Puerto Rico y las Islas Vírgenes están bajo aviso de tsunami, un nivel inferior a alerta de tsunami, pero dichos avisos ya fueron cancelados.

El terremoto se registró cerca de 125.4 millas al norte, al noreste de la costa de Barra Patucca, Honduras.
