A strong 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck off Nicaragua's northwestern Pacific coast on Sunday, seismologists said, rattling Nicaragua, Honduras and El Salvador.
Nicaraguan authorities said the quake, which hit at 0937 GMT and had a depth of 73 kilometers (45 miles), was followed by five strong aftershocks.
Authorities in Nicaragua reported no damage or injuries, and no tsunami. That was echoed by officials in El Salvador, where the Office of Civil Protection said "there are no reports of personal or material damage."
