Tsunami threat in Caribbean Sea has passed -International Tsunami Center

Jan 28 (Reuters) - The threat of tsunami waves triggered by a magnitude 7.7 earthquake in the Caribbean Sea has passed, the International Tsunami Information Center said on Tuesday.

Earlier, the center said tsunami waves of up to 1 meter (3 feet) were possible on some coasts in Mexico, Belize, Cuba, Honduras, Jamaica and the Cayman Islands.

"The tsunami threat has now largely passed," the center said. (Reporting by Sandra Maler in Washington; Editing by Will Dunham)
