Port Royal, Jamaica, Central America

Once a notorious hub for pirate gangs, Port Royal was once branded ‘the most wicked city in the world’. That went on until June 1692 when a massive 7.5 earthquake shook the island of Jamaica, sucking Port Royal into the ocean and killing over 2,000 of it’s inhabitants. Was this earthquake a natural accident or was it retribution for all the sins committed there?
