The first one was a magnitude of 4.7 on the Richter scale and it was recorded at about 10:32 am, while a second quake of 4.9 occurred at 10:37 am, both with epicenters northwest and east of Puerto Armuelles, with depths of 10 and 20 kilometers.
The province was worrying up until about 12:01 pm, as another tremor of 4.0 with an epicenter of 12 kilometers northwest of Puerto Armuelles, again shaking in western Chiriqui.
Once the earthquakes were recorded, the National Civil Protection System (Sinaproc) began monitoring in David, Bugaba, Renacimiento and Volcán, without registering damage or victims that were hurt.
It is recognized that so far this year, 44 earthquakes have been reported throughout the country, 40 of which belong to the province of Chiriquí. (Dia A Dia)
