A Cayman Islands earthquake rattled the region Tuesday morning with a 5.8 magnitude.

The Cayman Islands are located south of Cuba in the Caribbean Region, which is still recovering from the Haiti earthquake a week ago.

On Monday, a 6.0 Guatemala earthquake was recorded, though there was reportedly no damage.

Early reports said the Cayman Islands earthquake hit just six miles underground and that telephone lines were reported down in the region.

A photographer in the Cayman Islands told Reuters his apartment shook for approximately 10 seconds.
