7.0-magnitude earthquake rattles Central America
Nov. 24, 2016 -- A magnitude 7.0 earthquake shook portions of Central American on Thursday afternoon, shortly after Hurricane Otto made landfall on the border of Nicaragua and Costa Rica.
The quake's epicenter was 93 miles southwest of Puerto Triunfo, El Salvador, at a depth of 6 miles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The earthquake was felt across the region, including Managua, the capital of Nicaragua; San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador; and San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica.


The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said El Salvador and Nicaragua could experience related tsunami waves of 1-3 feet. No reports of injuries or damage were reported. The earthquake struck at 1:43 p.m. Eastern west of El Salvador. A few hundred miles east, Otto reached landfall between Costa Rica and Nicaragua at 1 p.m., according to the National Hurricane Center.

Yeah I think the plates are shifting a bit right now. Alaska's been lucky to be sticking to harmless M5 or lower, but we did have a 6.7 not too long ago in the Castle fault (which is south central mainland - a bit more north of the "usual" Cook Inlet tremors. Castle fault is about 10 miles west of where I live, by the cabin we sold last winter.)
