A 5.4 magnitude earthquake shook much of the country Sunday night. The tremor originated in Puntarenas, with its epicenter eight kilometers northeast of Arancibia, and was felt through the Central Valley.
The movement was recorded at 7:33 pm. The RSN recorded that it had a depth of 77 kilometers but the report of the Vulcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (Ovisicori) recorded that it had a depth of 82 kilometers. The cause of the tremor is the deformation of the subducted plate of Coco, according to the Facebook of Ovisicori.
People from the Central Valley took to social media to report feeling the tremor. Evaluations by the National Emergency Commission and the Fire Brigade indicated there were no incidents or damage from the earthquake.
