AN EARTHQUAKE has rocked Panama, with citizens in the capital city of Panama City reporting “a big shake”.

Sat, Jan 27, 2018

The earthquake was registered at a strength of 5.7, just days after a huge 8.0 quake put the western coast of America and parts of Mexico on tsunami alert.

Today’s Panama earthquake hit at a depth of 25 miles around 110 miles from the populous Panama City, which is home to 400,000 people.

Earthquake tracking website EMSC-CSEM registered dozens of testimonies from people who experienced the quake.

One resident of Panama City said: “[I’m on the] 11th floor in a Panama City building. Big shake, plates on the table moved, drinks spilled.”

Another in the city said: “Very strong.”

A third resident of the capital said: “I live in a high-rise building. It felt like they were trying to move the building.”

EMSC-CSEM said a tsunami warning was not issued and no damage was expected.

The tracking website also estimated one million people lived in the ‘felt area’ of the earthquake.
