Metadata Updated: February 28, 2022

On November 18, 1867 at 18:45 UTC, a violent earthquake along the north scarp of the Anegada Trough, occurred 15 to 20 km southwest of St. Thomas, Virgin Islands (U.S. Territory). The two shocks were separated by an interval of 10 to 15 minutes and both of these shocks resulted in tremendous tsunamis. The strong earthquake was felt at the U.S. Virgin Islands (St. Thomas, St. Croix), the British Virgin Islands (Tortola, St. John), and Puerto Rico (Viequez and Culebra).
