Two earthquakes Saturday were located on Pacific coast

Two quakes Saturday rattled the central Pacific coast.

The first, estimated by both the Laboratorio de Ingenieria Sismica and the Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico de Costa Rica at 4.3 took place at 6:14 a.m. The epicenter was estimated to be just off the Pacific coast about 5.5 kilometers south southwest of Pasito de Savegre de Aguirre, Puntarenas. This quake appears to have been felt as far east as Turrialba.

The second quake at 5:07 p.m. had a magnitude of 3.9, said the  Observatorio. The epicenter was estimated to be exactly on the coastline south of Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio. This quake, too, was felt in the Central Valley and points east.
