This is breaking news on The Guardian -

MEXICO CITY (AP) — A strong 6.5-magnitude earthquake was registered off the Pacific coast of Nicaragua around midday Saturday, the U.S. Geological Survey said. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries after the quake, which was felt at 11:34 a.m. local time (1734 GMT). The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was centered about 50 kilometers (31 miles) west of the Masachapa, a community located on Nicaragua's Pacific coast. Nicaragua's seismological institute measured the temblor's strength as 6.6, and it declared a tsunami alert as a precaution because of the earthquake's strength.

Hope there does not be a tsunami!
although would danger of that have already passed?
