The overwhelming majority of Costa Rica is Christian. Same as in Rome and Mexico.

does this help any?


Yeah. According to your God-causes-earthquakes-when-people-don't-believe-in-him theory the one true god isn't the Christian god. I'm going to have to switch.

I'm earthquake experienced in that I've apprehended hundreds (watch the erlenmeyer flask contents sway), with some big ones luckily not right under my house of the time, only x miles away. Morning awakenings in different places I lived with the room moving. No wonder I'm interested in building/architecture/small places. I'm interested in the same way re hurricanes.

Meantime, Haiti is in turmoil and I am so sorry, no words.

@Robert Gentel,
I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that our new friend doesn't consider Catholics to be Christians. He's most likely one of those discriminating, Pat Robertson-type of Christians.

@JPB,
That's why I went out of my way not to mention Catholics. Gee, thanks for the spoiler.

@Robert Gentel,
I'm sure he knows what the major religion of Rome and Mexico is. That's why he named them specifically.

@BorntoWorship,
I think earthquakes shake the nuts off the branches of the human tree and a lot of them fall here.

6.2-magnitude quake hits Costa Rica

(AP) " 1 hour ago

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica " A 6.2-magnitude earthquake has rattled Costa Rica. There are no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

Red Cross spokesman Freddy Roman says the quake "was felt very strongly" at several of the agencies' offices.

The U.S. Geological Survey says it was centered about 42 miles (67 kilometers) south of San Jose, the capital.

Local television stations interrupted their programming Thursday and received calls from viewers frightened by the quake.

@dlowan,
Probably so. The original one did some damage to his house. This one was only slightly smaller in magnitude.

6.1 or 6.2, Costa Rica Shook For A Whole Minute

An earthquake struck Costa Rica at 4:16pm (local time) with the epicentre located 30 kilometres off the coast of Quepos. The quake that lasted almost a minute was felt across the country.

The OVSICORI (the Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico de Costa Rica) say the quake registered 6.1 on the Richter scale on their instruments, while the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reports a reading of 6.2.

No matter whom you choose to believe, the ground shook and it was felt "very strongly".

Fortunately there were no reports of material damage or victims.

Reports of power failures before and after the quake was reported in many areas, and though not related to the earthquake, the skies came down with torrential rain in the Central Pacific coast following the seismic activity.

The quake was felt most in the areas of Quepos, the Zona sur, Central Valley (San José), Cañas (Guanacaster, Perez Zeledon, Cartago, Puntarenas, Jacó and Drake Bay.

Costa Rica Earthquake Causes No Damage
May 21st, 2010 - 5:56 pm ICT by GD -

By Madhuri Dey
San Jose, Costa Rica, May 21, (THAINDIAN NEWS)

Costa Rica was hit by a major earthquake on Thursday, May 20, in the afternoon at about 4:16 p.m., according to reports. The quake measured about 6.2 in the Richter Scale, according to the reports of the Geological Survey of the United States. The epicenter of the earthquake was about 42 miles away to the south of the capital city of San Jose, and it originated about 38 miles deep. he earthquake was a pretty strong one, and could be felt not only in San Jose, but also in the surrounding provinces. The towns of Perez Zeledon, Puntarenas and Bahia Drake were the ones that felt the temblor most strongly.

Although the quake was a pretty strong one, thankfully there are still no reports of any injuries pr damages, either to property or life. This is the second major earthquake to have struck the region in two days, although, thankfully, no damages or loss of life had been reported in either of the cases. Only the day before the Costa Rica earthquake, Peru was struck by a major quake, but in that case too, no damages had been reported.

The earthquake caused major panic among the residents of the regions which experienced the tremors, and naturally, because the one that struck Costa Rica on Jan 8 of this year caused considerable damage, and resulted in the death of eight people. However, reports suggest that there has been no such incidents in the one that struck yesterday, although the authorities are still looking or casualties. The local television stations put their programs on hold when the quake struck, receiving calls from panicked citizens instead.

I'm in Costa Rica now, and was when this earthquake hit. I was a hundred or so KM north of San Jose, but I felt the earth rumble up there. I thought it was the Arenal Volcano until I hit upon this thread.
