2 temblors also shook Costa Rica last night

October 14, 2014

Two strong temblors of magnitudes 4.9 and 6.7 shook most of Costa Rica Monday night, at 9:31 p.m. and 9:52 p.m.

A report by the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica registered the first temblor’s epicenter at 50 kilometers (31 miles) west of Bahia Ballena, in the southern Pacific, while the second was located in the northern Pacific, near the Nicaraguan coast.

The National Seismological Network reported the magnitudes at 5.3 and 6.3, respectively.

Emergency officials have not received any reports of injuries or significant damage to structures.

A powerful magnitude-7.3 earthquake southeast of El Salvador’s capital on Monday night was felt across Central America, prompting a brief tsunami warning. At least one person was killed.
