    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Thousands of Costa Ricans had a rude awakening this morning when an earthquake caused the Pacific south to shake their homes and dreams.

    The quake struck at 4:01 am on Sunday and took place 44 kilometers south of Dominical de Osa, in the South Zone of the country. The magnitude was 5.1 Mw and 4.5 kilometers deep, according to the report from the National Seismological Network.

    According to reports from readers on the Facebook page of the Network, the quake was felt as “mild” and “short” in the metropolitan area and “short but strong” in places near the epicenter.

    In Jacó many described it as longer and rougher, especially from a tower or tall building. In Guadeloupe they felt the same way.

    After the main earthquake, at least 6 more aftershocks in the same place could also be felt.

    The first was at 4:13 am with a magnitude of 3.1 Mw and 4:16 am there was another with the same intensity.

    The strongest aftershock was 4.2 Mw at 4:19 am, followed by two more at 3 Mw and 3.6 Mw, occurring at 5:22 am. So those most sensitive to these movements probably had problems getting back to sleep.
