Quake Shakes Rio Dulce

A quake lasting about one minute shook the Rio Dulce area this morning, May 28, 2009 at 3:24:45 AM, awakening residents and tossing water from swimming pools.

Electricity shut down during the quake and was restored immediately after the shaking stopped. A few minutes later, power failed again and was restored later in the morning.

I am not aware of any damage reports from Rio Dulce.

The Mag 7.1 quake struck under the sea north of Honduras, near the island of Roatan. It was centered at 16.729°N, 86.212°W, 75 miles (125 km) NNE of La Ceiba, Honduras. Horizontal location error, 4.3 km (2.7 miles). Depth 10 km (6.2 miles).
