(AP) — A magnitude-5.0 earthquake has rattled Trinidad & Tobago during its popular Carnival celebrations, but no damage or injuries have been reported.
The quake struck shortly after midnight some 55 miles or 89 kilometers from the twin-island nation's capital of Port-of-Spain.
It also shook Grenada and parts of Venezuela's Caribbean coast.
The US Geological Survey says the offshore quake's epicenter was 94 kilometers or 58 miles beneath the earth's surface.
In Port-of-Spain, some jittery people lingered outdoors after the ground rattled buildings and hotels.
Police say they received numerous calls from residents about the quake.
