Earthquake off the Coast of El Salvador

Last night at about 10:00 pm, El Salvador experienced a 7.4 earthquake 65 miles off the shore of Usulutan. Fortunately, there have been minimal damages, and only one death reported; caused by a falling telephone poll. We have been making calls to the communities to check in, and so far so good. People in the communities were worried and scared by the tremor, but no serious injuries or damages have been reported. We will keep you posted as we receive information, and if you have any questions or concerns, please send us an email at cebes@fundahmer.org.sv.

Below I have included some resources to read more about the earthquake:
