5.0 Quake Hits Masachapa, Nicaragua

An earthquake measuring 5.0 on the Richter scale jolted 76km SW of Masachapa, Nicaragua at 19:06:04 GMT on Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The epicenter, with a depth of 48.65 km, was initially determined to be at 11.2803 degrees north latitude and 86.9982 degrees west longitude.

What to do after an earthquake

  • Expect aftershocks hours, days, or weeks after the main quake. Aftershocks can cause building damage and falling debris that could injure you.
  • Avoid open flames in damaged buildings. Earthquakes can damage gas lines, so don’t use lighters or matches.
  • If you live near the coast, stay away from the beach. Earthquakes can cause dangerous tsunamis and flooding.
  • Drive carefully and plan alternative routes. Structural damage and traffic light outages may make it difficult to get to your destination.
