Magnitude 4.5 earthquake shakes Costa Rica

New York, Dec 12, 2012 (AP):

The US Geological Survey is reporting that a magnitude 4.5 earthquake rattled Costa Rica early today. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The USGS said the quake, which struck at 12:54 a.m. local time, had an epicenter about three kilometers south-southwest of Naranjo, which is about 35 kilometers west of the capital San Jose. Its depth was 10.1 kilometers.

A smaller earthquake shook Puerto Rico last evening.

The USGS says the magnitude 2.6 quake, which occurred at about 6:30 p.m. at a depth of nine kilometers, had an epicenter five kilometers east-southeast of Mayaguez, or about 106 kilometers west of San Juan. No injuries or damage were immediately reported.
