Mother Earth got the attention of residents in Nosara with three earthquakes within seven minutes Tuesday morning.
The first was estimated to have a magnitude of 3.5, said the Laboratorio de Ingenieria Sismica. The quake was logged at 10:58 a.m. Five minutes later, the Laboratorio logged a 3.7 magnitude quake. And at 11:05 there was a third, estimated to be of 3.5 magnitude.
The epicenters all appeared to be just off shore into the Pacific from the beach community.
The Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico estimated slightly different magnitudes.
Nosara residents have felt hundreds of quakes since the Sept. 5 major earthquake off nearby Sámara.
