    The magnitude 5.9 earthquake struck at 4:47pm in the northern center of Costa Rica Friday and was felt throughout most of the country. The tremor was 65 km deep and the epicenter was 6 km North of Santiago de Puriscal. There were no immediate aftershocks and the quake lasted around 10 seconds. So far there have been no reports of casualties, but there have been reports of road cracks at Los Santos en Guapiles, and landslides on the highway routes 27 and 32. However, all roads have remained open. Network failures have occurred in major cities such as the capital San José, Alajuela, and Heredia. 20 years ago a similar earthquake hit Santiago de Puriscal.
