The Laboratorio placed the epicenter at 59.5 kilometers south southeast of Puerto Jiménez. That’s about 37 miles.
The Red Sismológica Nacional put the epicenter much closer to the Osa peninsula community. It said the epicenter was 15 kilometers south of Puerto Jiménez. That is just a bit more than nine miles. It also said that the magnitude was 5.5.
The quake appears to have been felt as far north as the Central Valley, according to sensor reports from the Laboratorio.
