That's a significant upgrade from the preliminary estimate which had put its strength at magnitude 3.3

The Earthquake Unit says the tremor with a focal depth of 23.1 kilometre was felt in St Catherine and Kingston and St Andrew.

The epicentre was located approximately 4 kilometre east of Angels in St Catherine.

However, persons living as far west as St Elizabeth said that they felt the tremor.
