Earthquake in Argentina! 6.9 Richter!


washingtonexaminer.com

A magnitude-7.0 earthquake struck a rural area of northern Argentina Saturday morning, but its epicenter was so deep that it gave only a light shake to towns nearby.

It was not immediately clear if there were any injuries or damage, but the earthquake was hardly felt in Santiago del Estero, the provincial capital, where Emilio Abdala, a receptionist at the 14-story Hotel Casino Carlos V, told The Associated Press that nobody felt a thing.

hope there was not any significant damage, but looks like mother earth chooses strange days to set his nature to work, 25 dec 2004 tsunami and now this one... strange coincidence.

Let´s see what comes up later about this event, it could be interesting if someone knows nearby some person who felt this earthquake, just to know from first hand what happened.

So far no reports of injury or damage as it was a very deep quake. It's been upgraded to a 7 mag also. See Quake Watch 2011

It seems it wasn't too bad, according to the news, almost nobody felt it.

"No se informó de inmediato sobre víctimas o daños, pero el sismo apenas se sintió en Santiago del Estero, capital de la provincia del mismo nombre, donde Emilio Abdala, recepcionista del Hotel Casino Carlos V, de 14 pisos, dijo a The Associated Press que nadie sintió nada".

from : portal.tds.net...

It says no victims or damages reported. a recepcionist of a 14 floors Hotel said nobody felt it.

It was very, very deep - so won't have been hugely destructive despite it's size - and there won't be many aftershocks either.
