have to go to Twitter to get the most news on the subject, also info on national news channels since it happened.

6.9 quake is the last I heard, near Samara as Luis pointed out. Some Tsunami warnings issued for Pacific coast. no reported injuries so far.

Here in the Central valley was felt strong and was a long one by earthquake standards.

We are all doing well, although it was felt all around the country, even in the Caribbean Coast, I have heard reports of people who felt it in tortuguero, South pacific, Manuel Antonio...everywhere. But the good thing is that there are no casualties to report. Things fell of shelves in Guanacaste and I could see my car moving from side to side in the parking lot....but I am thinking about all those tourists who are not used to tremors...hope they are doing well and taking it easy.

Reports indicate it was 7.6 and the tsunami alert has been canceled.

Hi there,

Is your son Rich Davis? If so, is there any way you can put me in touch with him? I used to live in the area and know RIch well, and would love to learn more about the situation in Samara including the safety of my friends and the status of my home.

Any help would be great!

My name is Mark, he will definitely remember me from Samara.
