Venezuela’s northern coast has been rocked by a powerful earthquake that was felt across the Caribbean and sent people rushing out into the streets hundreds of kilometres away in the capital, Caracas.
 
The United States Geological Survey said a 7.3-magnitude earthquake had struck off the South American country’s northern coast, east of the city of Carúpano at a depth of 123km (76 miles).
 
The Colombian Geological Service said it was a 7.0-magnitude quake.
 
The earthquake was felt more than 600km further east in Caracas, where the crisis-stricken nation’s political leaders were celebrating a “revolutionary” new economic plan they claim will rescue Venezuela’s crumbling economy but economists fear will make it worse.
