Nicaraguan government asks Cuba, Mexico and El Salvador for support
The Nicaraguan government has asked Cuba, Mexico and El Salvador to send experts to study the seismic swarm registered in the western side of the country, PL news agency reported.
The coordinator of the Communication and Citizenship Council, Rosario Murillo, specified that they're talking about the specialists who were in that country in April, 2014, when a 6.2-magnitude earthquake and its aftershocks shook Managua and neighboring cities.
We are concerned because the phenomenon is increasing, as well as the magnitude of earthquakes, asserted Murillo, who pointed out the need to further study this phenomenon to arrive at scientific conclusions.
According to the latest update by the Nicaraguan Institute of Territorial Studies, the strongest of the recent tremors reached a magnitude of 4.9 on the Richter scale and occurred early this morning at a depth of 15.4 kilometers.
One of the strategies to support families affected by these earthquakes is that the Government sends materials to build temporary shelters while damaged houses are repaired or new ones are built.
