    Almost 30 Earthquakes Have Been Recorded in Costa Rica in First Days of 2014The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Although most have been mild, about 27 earthquakes were recorded in the first six days of 2014.

    “There have been similar amounts of earthquakes in the early days of the year. This does not mean it will be a year of more seismic activitiy; it is normal for a country like ours,” said Wilfredo Rojas of the Earthquake Engineering Laboratory of the University of Costa Rica (UCR)

    Rojas explained that many of the tremors were recorded are of small magnitude, so they are only collected on seismographs.

    On the first of the year, the night of January 1 at 9:35 pm there was a quake with a magnitude of 3.3 on the Richter scale. It occurred 13 kilometers (km) west of San Vito de Coto Brus and was 61.3 km deep, according to the National Seismological Network of the UCR (RSN-UCR).

    On January 2, three earthquakes were recorded, while on January 3 there were five tremors.

    Rojas, the Central Pacific and South Pacific are the places where the greatest number of earthquakes have been recorded in Costa Rica.
