A powerful earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.1 hit Costa Rica at 19:24 UTC (14:24 LT) on May 12. The agency is reporting a depth of 19 km (11.8 miles).
There are some 750,000 people living within 100 km (62 miles) of the epicenter.
Approximately 1.2 million are estimated to have felt shaking.
A number of strong aftershocks have been reported in the region.
And reports are coming in of damage and casualties.
Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in our sun.
The recent global uptick in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, a waning magnetosphere, and the increase in Galactic Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
