6.5 earthquake in Guatemala

#1 Postby Macrocane » Fri Sep 06, 2013 9:05 pm

A 6.5 was registered this afternoon in Guatemala. The epicenter was in the southwestern part of the country, same area that was hit by a 7.4 earthquake that killed more than 40 people last year. Moderate but very localize damage has been reported with a few people injured, no deaths yet fortunately.

The quake was felt in El Salvador as well but no damages have been reported here.
