Twin quakes take place just south of Quepos

A quake with an estimated magnitude of 4.5 took place Wednesday night right at 9 p.m. Four minutes later a second quake of 3.5 magnitude followed. The epicenter for both was a few miles inland and between Quepos and Manuel Antonio on the Pacific coast.

The initial quake was felt in the Central Valley and as far north as Liberia, said the Laboratorio de Ingeniería Sísmica at the Universidad de Costa Rica.
