5.2 quake 24 Nov 11:22 am (GMT -5)
According to the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the quake hit on Thursday, November 24th, 2022, at 11:22 am local time at a shallow depth of 10 km. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake which listed the quake at magnitude 5.2 as well. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.2, and the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) at magnitude 5.2.
Generally quakes of this magnitude are recorded by more than one agency and the results can vary, with subsequent reports that come in after the first one often showing more accuracy.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should have been widely felt by almost everyone in the area of the epicenter. It might have caused light to moderate damage.
Moderate shaking probably occurred in Puerto Viejo (pop. 56) located 11 km from the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Acari (pop. 4,400) located 93 km from the epicenter, and Coracora (pop. 7,400) 102 km away.
