Well now I know the answer to that question. Late this afternoon in samara Costa rica we had one, 4.6 the hotel owner told me. I was in the bathroom showering off after a surf session and the whole room shook and a low rumble sound like a muffled explosion happened. Then it was over. My wife came in and said with an excited demeanor “was that an earthquake?” And “should we go outside?” Yes probably I said but as I was naked I wasn’t too speedy about it and there were no followup tremors. Pretty cool experience! Supposedly the volcano arenal had a big eruption recently so some earth needed resettling.
What’s it like to be in an earthquake?
