Four Earthquakes Were Recorded In Chiriqui

EarthquakesFour earthquakes were recorded in Chiriqui in less than 32 hours, causing panic among the population in the province after feeling these movements.

According to Dr. Eduardo Camacho from the Geosciences Institute in the University of Panama (IGUP), the first earthquake was recorded at 1:42 a.m. on August 27, to the west of Coiba island in the Gulf of Chiriqui.

The second event, of 4.7 magnitude in the Richter scale, was recorded to the northeast of Volcan in the highlands of Chiriqui.

Then, at 9:28 p.m. another 4. 7 earthquake was felt to the southeast of Coiba, and finally at 7:07 a.m. on August 28 another 3.9 Richter magnitude earthquake was felt.

Abelardo Serrano Guerra, director of Civil Protection in Chiriqui, said no damages have been reported after these earthquakes were registered in the province.

“The most important thing is to remain calm, and be prepared to know what to do when any of these movements take place,” said Guerra. Serrano explained they are training schools on prevention plans, as well as homes so they can organize an evacuation plan to know where to go and what to do when these type of events take place.
