Only five quakes in January

January was low on earthquakes strong enough to be felt by humans.

The Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico de Costa Rica reported only five quakes during the month. They ranged from 2.5 to 3.9 magnitude. Two were in the Central Valley and were caused by local faults, the observatory said.

Two were in the central Pacific and the fifth was in the southern zone.
