    The UWI Seismic Research Centre has transitioned to a new earthquake alert system.

    This will see the use of a lower magnitude threshold, which is 3.5.

    According to the Centre, this will result in more earthquakes being posted, but does not mean that activity in the region has increased.

    It adds that posts regarding earthquakes may be replicated as it works out any bugs.
