PANAMA CITY (Reuters) - A 5.9 magnitude earthquake
struck western Panama near the border of Costa Rica on Monday,
about 131 miles south of David, Panama, at a depth of
6.2 miles, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
The quake was not widely felt in the capital of Panama City
and there was no immediate report of damage.
A scientist at the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii
said the quake was not strong enough to cause a tsunami.
