7.3-magnitude quake off El Salvador coast

Woah.

that's a big one no?

inagist.com...



Trying to find info on what plate this is by.

Its almost like the CONUS is being squeezed.

Now they are saying that the Pacific tsunami warning system did NOT issue a warning.

And this is what your link points to: (?)




The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reported a 7.3-magnitude earthquake in the Pacific Ocean off the central American country of El Salvador near midnight local time (4:37 UTC) on Sunday, August 26. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a brief tsunami alert for a stretch of central American coastline. There have been no initial reports of major damage or injuries. Reuters reported contacting several residents in the El Salvador capital San Salvador, who said they had not felt the quake.

Ok, Crow is fowl. You are so right... that was really weird though. Your original link took me straight here:

earthsky.org...

Anyway, the AP just posted this which is a departure from your thread title:



The U.S. Geological Survey says that a strong earthquake has hit off the Pacific coast of Guatemala, rocking the capital and shaking buildings as far away as Mexico City and El Salvador.The magnitude-7.5 quake, about 20 miles deep, was centered off the town of Champerico.

Weird. But do not be to upset, Al Gores Interwebs sometimes has me all bamboozled as well.

Im trying to figure out how to remove you from my foes list now.


I guess this quake was 41 KMs down, so the depth has something to do with the warnings I would assume?

I would venture to say that is a good assumption. This is definitely a newsworthy story. That's a big quake. Good catch...

Massive earthquake out of the Champerico, Guatemala coast – Red alert called by the president – At least 2 people killed



Update 18:16 UTC : Due to the death of 2 people, this earthquake becomes a CatDat Red earthquake. We feel very sorry for the family of the deceased. Lets hope that no other fatalities will be added to the current number. So far we have no numbers of injured but based on the image at right, we are sure that the damage will be considerable and that a lot of people will have been injured.

update


Update 20:11 UTC : New numbers just reported by CONRED : 15 people killed so far 100 people missing approx. 15 buried below the rubble of collapsed houses
