Sismo de 6.8 en la escala de Richter sacudió Costa Rica”

Ante la actividad sísmica de las últimas horas, expertos de la RSN han recordado a los medios locales la alta sismicidad de Costa Rica y Latinoamérica, específicamente de la costa en el Pacífico, donde se han producido gran parte de los más grandes terremotos jamás registrados en la región.

"Un abrazo solidario a nuestros hermanos costarricenses", afirmó el primer mandatario a través de su cuenta de Twitter.

Al menos dos personas murieron tras terremoto de magnitud 6.5 en la escala de Richter que se registró en la noche del domingo 12 de noviembre en Costa Rica.

Las autoridades hicieron un llamado a la calma a la población, a la que pidieron que tome medidas preventivas y a utilice los números de emergencias solo para casos verdaderamente urgentes.

El Sistema Nacional de Monitoreo de Tsunamis de la Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica ha descartado, por el momento, la posibilidad de un tsunami sobre la costa costarricense del Pacífico.

La Comisión agregó que el Organismo de Investigación Judicial está investigando las muertes.

El epicentro del movimiento telúrico se ubicó a 19 kilómetros al sur de la ciudad de Jaco mientras que el hipocentro se registró a 19 kilómetros de profundidad, detalló la Red Sismológica Nacional (RSN).

Tampoco hay reportes de personas heridas, indica el comunicado de la CNE.

La Red Sismológica Nacional (UCR-ICE), informó que el sismo de las 8:28 pm de magnitud 6,3 y su secuencia de réplicas ha sido originado en el proceso de subducción de la placa del Coco bajo la placa Caribe.
