    Costa Rica Earthquake (7.9) Caribbean-wide tsunami watch cancelled

    SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (Reuters) - A strong 7.9 earthquake rocked Costa Rica on Wednesday, rattling buildings and cutting power in some areas of the capital of San Jose, a Reuters correspondent and the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
    The quake hit close to Samara, a coastal area on the Pacific some 151 kms (94 miles) from the capital city. A Caribbean-wide tsunami watch is in effect, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

    Red face Oops!

    The tsunami watch http://ptwc.weather.gov/ptwc/text.ph...012.09.05.1450 was canceled moments after it was issued.

    "THE TSUNAMI WATCH FOR THE CARIBBEAN IS CANCELLED BECAUSE IT WAS MEANT FOR THE PACIFIC AND WAS INADVERTANTLY SENT TO THE CARIBBEAN BY MISTAKE. WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE THIS MAY HAVE CAUSED. "

    Aruba's data on the earthquake http://www.meteo.aw/quake2.php is attached...

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.
