Twin quakes rattle area south of Quepos and inland

The area around Quepos and as far inland as San Isidro de El General received two shakings Sunday night.

The first was at 8:37 p.m., and the Laboratorio de Ingenieria Sismica at the Universidad de Costa Rica estimated the magnitude of the quake at 4.0. Some 22 minutes later at 8:59 p.m., the Laboratorio detected a 3.8-magnitude quake.

The epicenter for both quakes was estimated to be in the Pacific 27 to 31 kilometers south southwest of Pasito de Savegre de Aguirre. That’s 17 or 18 miles.

Saturday, the Laboratorio registered a 4.1-magnitude quake at 6:49 p.m. about 13 kilometers southwest of Pavón de Golfito.
