This morning’s tremor is one of 15 quakes registered during this week, ranging between 2.3 and 5.3.

At 1:08am Thursday a 5.3 quake registered in the Central Valley, in the area of Turrubares, near Orotina. The others, in lower intensity, have been felt in various areas of the country, including areas of Santa Maria de Dota and Playa Garza, in Guanacaste.

OVSICORI experts say the tremors are “normal” for we live in a country with high seismicity.
