Social media has helped the UWI Seismic Research Centre better understand the intensity of earthquakes in different parts of T&T.
Alia Juman from the SRC’s Education Outreach Section says many people comment on their Facebook page saying where they felt earthquakes.
Ms Juman says while this helps the SRC, it needs more details to develop shaking intensity maps.
The UWI Seismic Research Centre is hosting an Open House tour on August 21st to commemorate the 1st anniversary of the 6.9 magnitude earthquake last year.
Ms Juman says this is not a new initiative and aims to help members of the public to better understand what the SRC does.
Persons can register for the tour via the link provided on the UWI SRC’s Facebook page.
