Quotes

IMD-Bangalore director B Puttanna said: "Nothing has been recorded on the Richter scale of the IMD. It is possible that people could have felt a tremor because of the ongoing stone-blasting, mining and quarrying in the surrounding hillocks and ground areas."
He said that the last destructive earthquake in western Chiriqui occurred on Christmas Day, 2003 . "Earthquakes with magnitudes greater than 7 occurred in 1879 and 1934, the latter with a magnitude of 7.6 " he said
"On the streets, we haven't really seen much damage. You see it on the interiors in the building that we live, which is in the center of Mexico City. ... We're pretty much assessing damages. We have cracked walls throughout the apartment, chipped paint, and the emergency stairs - which are supposed to be the sturdiest - there's cracks that go all around. So hopefully within the next couple of days, administration of the building will let us know how bad it was overall" said Gimello
The residents "are no longer willing to separate themselves from their belongings" because in past years when area residents were forced to abandon the animals for a long period, "they suffered huge losses," the minister added
