I wouldnt be surprised if one of those volcanoes is about to erupt. Probably Santa Maria

On RSOE:

RSOE EDIS Event Report - Santiaguito volcano (Guatemala): felt earthquake under volcano. According to INSIVUMEH, a "very strong and prolonged" earthquake occurred under the volcano this morning at 05:25 local time. Paintings in houses were bouncing and small landslides occurred in steep river bed sides. The earthquake also triggered small avalanches on the steep flanks of the active Caliente lava dome.........

Not sure if it's the same thing but it seems to be.

There's no tsunami threat! Thank goodness.

However , I believe there are 3 deaths, in Guatemala, one a newborn baby.

Not sure if I'm reading news reports on this particular quake

Spurce
ETA
this report says the two other deaths reported were untrue.

What about the Volcán Tacaná in Mexico ( tacana volcano) ?

It's in the same region the quake hit
