Initially, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) reported the quake a 6.0 magnitude but later revised it to a 5.9.

The 9:03 am quake’s epicenter was south of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, close to the Costa Rica maritime border.

The epicenter was located 79 kilometers southwest of the Nicaraguan Pacific coastal town of San Juan del Sur, very close to the Costa Rican border.

In Costa Rica, the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica – Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico de Costa Rica (Ovsicori) – reported the quake as 6.1 magnitude; the National Seismological Network – Red Sismológica Nacional (RSN) – reported it as a 5.9 magnitude.
