Barbados earthquake and tsunami epicentre close to Australia

A powerful earthquake and massive tsunami triggered by the barbadas volcano erupted on Wednesday evening, killing at least 29 people, according to authorities in the southern city of Barca.

Local media said at least 10 people had been killed and more than 60 others injured.

The disaster prompted the evacuation of tens of thousands of people and the closure of hundreds of roads in the capital, Madrid.

A spokesman for Madrid Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera said authorities were still looking for people who might have been living in homes in Barca when the quake struck at about 10:00pm local time (19:00 GMT).

“There are a lot of buildings that were destroyed, and the streets are completely empty,” Mr Manceran said.

Barbados erupted after a magnitude-6.1 quake and tsunami triggered an epicentral quake on Tuesday that killed at least 30 people and injured dozens more, according the US Geological Survey. “

We are very sorry that people’s lives were put in danger, but there is no doubt that it was a very, very dangerous situation.”

The barbadans quake followed the epicentres of two smaller quakes earlier this month, and a 7.9 magnitude earthquake on October 7 that struck close to Barca, killing dozens.
