An earthquake of 7.3 magnitude as reported by the U.S. Geological Survey occurred yesterday, August 21, at 5:31 pm in northeastern Venezuela. It was felt throughout the region affecting several of the islands we serve. Due to proximity to the epicenter, Trinidad and Tobago were most affected by the quake. All of our employees and their families are safe and accounted for. Our office and port operations are unaffected and are operating as normal. Tropical Shipping expresses its concern for the people of Trinidad and the greater region.
