While earthquakes keep shaking the Japan area, other areas have rocked as well.
A 5.4-magnitude earthquake struck off the Dominican Republic just after 9:30 a.m. local time. The quake was 0.4 miles below the surface.
USGS first had it at a 5.0-magnitude quake, however Santo Domingo State University measured it at 5.3-magnitude.
This quake comes with a scare due to the fact the experts at Columbia University are warning this area to be hit with a 7.0-magnitude earthquake in the near future.
Wednesday morning's earthquake was later upgraded to a 5.4-magnitude.
