Quakes hit along Pacific

Two quakes estimated at 3.7 magnitude took place today, Friday, along the Pacific coast.

The Laboratorio de Ingenieria Sismica at the Universidad de Costa Rica said the first took place at 9:45 a.m. about six kilometers north northeast of Damas, Quepos, Aguirre, on the central Pacific coast. The quake was felt in all the way to San Pedro, the agency said. The estimate placed the epicenter just a few miles inland.

Just a minute after 1 p.m., the Laboratorio said a quake took place east southeast of Montezuma on the tip of the Nicoya peninsula. The estimate puts the epicenter at the mouth of the Gulf of Nicoya, a location of frequent seismic activity. The quake was felt strongest on the tip of the peninsula, the Laboratorio said.
