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.

Meanwhile, earlier in the day, at 7:34 am this morning, another earthquake, a 4.9 magnitude, was felt in two kilometers south of Playa Jaco & 25 km al Oeste de Parrita, Puntarenas.

That quake was at a depth of 5 kilometers and was felt lightly in nearby coastal areas, mostly in Jacó, Parrita and Playa Bejuco.
