Magnitude 5.8 quake strikes off Dominica island in Lesser Antilles
(Reuters) - A magnitude 5.8 quake struck off the island of Dominica in the Caribbean Sea's Lesser Antilles archipelago on Tuesday, the U.S. Geological Survey said. Although a magnitude 5.8 quake is capable of causing considerable damage, it was relatively deep, 91.8 miles (148 km) below the seabed, which would mitigate its impact. Dominica is a sovereign island with a population of about 72,500 people. | 10/18/16 10:35 PM

‘American Tarzan’ contestants battle the elements and personal demons

Discovery Channel’s new jungle obstacle course “American Tarzan” makes “American Ninja Warrior” look like a skip to the park and “Survivor” a trip to the spa.

Seven strangers, all strength and endurance athletes of various sorts, race along the remote Caribbean island of Dominica.

They must traverse dangerous rapids, rappel into a dark cave, run across something aptly named “razor grass,” climb a 50-foot cliff using vines, forage for food and set up a shelter.

That’s just the premiere. | 7/4/16 12:04 AM
