Magnitude Quake Off Central America Coast 

A 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck off the Pacific coast of Central America. It came on the heels of the powerful Hurricane Otto, and was felt in several countries across the region, triggering a brief tsunami warning.

Earlier the US Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a tsunami warning.

Hazardous” tsumani waves were possible within 300km of the quake epicenter along the coasts of Nicaragua, El Salvador and Honduras, the Center specified.

Nicaragua and El Salvador issued their own tsunami warnings in the wake of the earthquake.

There was a threat of waves as high as three meters (six feet) hitting the coast, Lina Pohl, El Salvador’s environment minister, said, as cited by AP.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, in turn, warned that waves of up to one meter (three feet) could hit Pacific coastlines.
