Chain of earthquakes shake Panama, Ecuador and Chile

A chain of three earthquakes of medium magnitude was recorded Thursday night in Panama, Ecuador and Chile minutes apart, with no reports of casualties or material damage.

In Panama, it was of magnitude 5.6 at 20:47 local time (01:47 GMT), in Ecuador of 6.2 , at 21:12 local time (02:12 GMT) and in Chile of 5.8, at 23:29 (02 : 39 GMT).

The seismological services of each country, as well as the United States Geological Survey (USGS), recorded the telluric movements in their different sensors.

The Panamanian, Ecuadorian and Chilean Civil Protection authorities review the places where the earthquakes were felt, in order to detect possible affectations and help the affected population.

The strongest earthquake movement in Ecuador was located 6 km from the town of Cumandá, in the province of Chimborazo.

It was felt with intensity in Guayaquil, Milagro, Daule, Durán, Latacunga, Riobamba, Yaguachi, Quito, Manta, Portoviejo, Santa Elena and Esmeraldas.

“The characteristics of the earthquake do not meet the necessary conditions to generate a tsunami in the continental and insular region of Ecuador,” said the Oceanographic Institute of the Navy.

The Secretariat of Risk Management called on citizens to “remain calm” after the earthquake, which generated fear among the population.
