The second earthquake developed at 07:42, local time, with a magnitude of 3.7 degrees in the Richter scale and 6.2 kilometers deep, according to the source.

Faced with these two phenomena, experienced by the population from the different municipalities of the department, school students were evacuated as a preventative measure.

Nicaragua is located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, an area of more than 40,000 kilometers, where most of the active volcanoes in the world are and earthquakes occur more frequently and are stronger there.

Often, authorities carry out simulations at schools and throughout the country to increase the capacity of the population and the institutions to face this kind of phenomena and other threats.
