Caribbean escapes damage from earthquake

ROSEAU, Dominica -- Although its tourist business as usual on the Caribbean island of Dominica, an earthquake measuring 6.0 on the Richter scale damaged numerous homes, schools, churches and roads in the north.

The quake followed several days of rain that caused more than 18 landslides. However, hotels, tourist attractions, the cruise port and the airport were undamaged.

It also hit the French island of Guadeloupe. The small Le Poisson Volant Hotel on Les Saintes was damaged and is closed. No reopening date has been set.
