7.6 Quake Rattles Costa Rica

According to the Red Cross, at least three people are dead and 20 are injured after a magnitude-7.6 earthquake struck Costa Rica on Wednesday. At least 60 aftershocks have also been reported after the quake shook buildings and cut power to some areas of the San Jose capital. While the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center at first issued a tsunami alert for the entire Caribbean, the center quickly retracted that warning, saying that it was meant for the Pacific.
