The singer took to Instagram to let fans know he was safe after a massive 7.6 magnitude natural disaster struck the Caribbean Sea off the coast of Honduras. The tremor struck in the sea about 125 miles (202 kilometers) north-northeast of Barra Patuca, Honduras, and 188 miles (303 kilometers) southwest of George Town, Cayman Islands.

The USGS said, "The Great Swan Island, Honduras natural disaster occurred as the result of strike slip faulting in the shallow crust near the boundary between the North America and Caribbean plates".
