Re: EARTHQUAKE.... HITS: Costa Rica MAGNITUDE 7.5-7.9
UPDATE:- The earthquake was most felt in Samara in Guanacaste.

UPDATE:- Tsunami Alert : Costa Rica, Panamá, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, México, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala y Perú.

A major earthquake has hit mainland Costa Rica with an initial magnitude of M7.6.

The Costa Rica seismology agency is currently down. Electricity and telecommunications were down in San Jose.

The earthquake has been registered with M7.9 from local sources, but offshore.

This is a potentially very damaging earthquake and there is a tsunami warning, given the difference in locations.

A M6.9 earthquake struck near here in 1978, causing zero deaths.

At least 500,000 people live in the near epicentral area with damaging intensities.

Twitter reports from Costa Rica:- “100km from us – shook the whole house, lasted a full minute. Crazy”

Re: EARTHQUAKE.... HITS: Costa Rica MAGNITUDE 7.5-7.9
AN EARTHQUAKE HAS OCCURRED WITH THESE PRELIMINARY PARAMETERS

ORIGIN TIME - 1442Z 05 SEP 2012
COORDINATES - 9.9 NORTH 85.5 WEST
DEPTH - 46 KM
LOCATION - OFF COAST OF COSTA RICA
MAGNITUDE - 7.9

EVALUATION

IT IS NOT KNOWN THAT A TSUNAMI WAS GENERATED. THIS WARNING IS
BASED ONLY ON THE EARTHQUAKE EVALUATION. AN EARTHQUAKE OF THIS
SIZE HAS THE POTENTIAL TO GENERATE A DESTRUCTIVE TSUNAMI THAT CAN
STRIKE COASTLINES NEAR THE EPICENTER WITHIN MINUTES AND MORE
DISTANT COASTLINES WITHIN HOURS. AUTHORITIES SHOULD TAKE
APPROPRIATE ACTION IN RESPONSE TO THIS POSSIBILITY. THIS CENTER
WILL MONITOR SEA LEVEL DATA FROM GAUGES NEAR THE EARTHQUAKE TO
DETERMINE IF A TSUNAMI WAS GENERATED AND ESTIMATE THE SEVERITY OF
THE THREAT.

also, I saw it, was too busy with my eyes on a volcano in the US. But I think it was more like a 6.5 to 6.8 at first glance. It did clip the station in nicaragua though...Might have completely fried the station in costa rica:

Re: EARTHQUAKE.... HITS: Costa Rica MAGNITUDE 7.5-7.9
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has issued a tsunami alert for coastlines from Mexico to Chile, after a 7.6 magnitude earthquake struck 8 kilometers off the coast of Costa Rica.

The quake hit close to Samara, a coastal area on the Pacific some 151 kms from the capital, San Jose. Some parts of the capital have lost power, but so far, no casualties have been reported.

The Tsunami Warning Center released a statement, saying "earthquakes of this size have the potential to generate a widespread destructive tsunami that can affect coastlines across the entire Caribbean region."

The last major earthquake in Costa Rica was a 6.1 magnitude quake in 2009, which killed 40 people, according to the USGS.

Chile's Navy also issued a tsunami alert.

I am in Costa Rica, I was sitting in my house writing and email. Things started shaking and my mother in law who has lived here all her life ran for the door and front lawn. I followed more leisurely. The car in the garage was just rocking seriously and it kept up for about a minute. Hardest one I've felt...

Which area are you at? I am near Dominical and man was it ever swaying. I also ran out of the house. This is by far the worse and longest I have ever felt, I am trying to come down now...

My cell is not calling out, do you have a problem trying to call out?

If my country is not showing costa rica is because I use a UBS internet stick, really don't know why it wouldn't show.

UPDATE:- It has been felt intensity VII and VIII outside of the epicentral region indicating major damage in the epicentral region. The values of VIII in San Jose registered are not expected and are probably outliers. It was felt in Nicaragua and other countries in Central America.

UPDATE:- The earthquake was most felt in Samara in Guanacaste. We have a local magnitude of 6.7 at a depth of 6km which will cause major damage in the epicentral area. 13 km al Suroeste de CANGREJAL de Nicoya de Guanacaste. [link to earthquake-report.com]
