Costa Rica Earthquake


All of you might have seen the terrifying bulletin yesterday: a powerful earthquake had struck off the coast of this Central American country, spawning a tsunami warning and bringing fears of widespread catastrophe.
Costa Rica seems to have suffered a very little damage from that earth quake of magnitude magnitude-7.6. What were the damages, let’s see, some highways were blocked, some houses were collapsed and one person died (due to heart attack caused by fear).
According to U.S. Geological Survey that quake was centered about 38 miles from the town of Liberia and 87 miles west of the capital, San Jose. Also this must be noted that the quake was followed by three strong aftershocks having magnitudes more than 4.
