The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – An earthquake of magnitude 6.0 shook the Pacific coast last Thursday in Costa Rica, although there have been no reports of damages or casualties. The Geological Survey of the United States indicated that the quake struck at 6:29 am local time (1229 GMT) with the epicenter 50 kilometers (31 miles) west of Sardinal, 18 kilometers (11 miles) below surface.
The quake was felt strongly in the coast, but the National Emergency Commission said it received no reports of injuries or significant damage. Exactly one year ago an earthquake of magnitude 7.6 struck the same region. That quake caused panic but only one death. FNL
