Three separate earthquakes struck the Central American nation of Guatemala Monday, killing at least three people and causing buildings in the capital, Guatemala City, to shake.
The largest quake, with a magnitude of 5.8, hit just after noon local time. The quake, like the other two, was centered some 52 kilometers south of the capital. The temblors occurred within a 90-minute period.
One woman died when her house collapsed in the town of Cuilapa. A landslide was also reported following the quakes.
The quakes caused the evacuation of buildings in the area and affected electricity and telephone services.
