Reportan sismo en Honduras

Reportan sismo en Honduras

El sismo se registró a unos 44 kilómetros (25 millas) al este de las Islas del Cisne, Honduras, que están deshabitadas a excepción de un pequeño puesto de la marina.

Un fuerte terremoto sacudió esta noche el norte de Honduras y fue sensible en buena parte territorio hondureño.

Inicialmente se dijo que el movimiento telúrico era de 7.8 grados por el Centro de Alerta Tsunami en Hawái, pero finalmente se ubica como de 7.6 grados, dándose una alerta de tsunami e instando a los diferentes gobiernos centroamericanos a tomar medidas pertinentes.

El presidente hondureño, Juan Orlando Hernández, comunicó que activó el sistema nacional de emergencias y pidió mantener la calma a la población.

El temblor también fue sensible en el área central de Petén, San Benito y Santa Elena.

Auburn rallies to upend Mississippi State 76-68
It was a battle in the paint for the whole 40 minutes, as Ado fought for every point and rebound in his double-double. Interestingly, Auburn shot just 35 percent from the floor Saturday - its worst shooting performance of the season.

Indicó que sabe que el gobierno estadounidense emitió una alerta de Tsunami, pero esperarán la alerta oficial que le corresponde a la Armada de México, que todavía no se ha dado.

Chetumal, Cancún, Playa del Carmen y Felipe Carrillo Puerto fueron las localidades en las que se pudo sentir el sismo, mismas que no reportan daños, hasta el momento.

Tras el sismo, las olas podrían afectar Puerto Rico e las islas Vírgenes, según el Servicio Geológico de Estados Unidos (USGS, por sus siglas en inglés).

Aparentemente el epicentro del terremoto está alejado de centros urbanos, pero por el momento no se conoce cuál ha podido ser su alcance.

"Según los cálculos, para la costa del Caribe de Nicaragua no hay peligro, lo más importante es que las olas que se pueden esperar en la zona serán bastante pequeñas, menos de 30 centímetros", explicó Strauch.
