:( I'm not expecting Nicaragua to get away as lightly as New Zealand and Japan did.

Is it just confirmation bias or have we seen more big quakes this year than usual?

On top of all the other "earthquakes" of 2016, that it.

A 7.0 magnitude earthquake has shaken El Salvador and Nicaragua, just an hour after a powerful hurricane hit Nicaragua's eastern coast.

The double whammy was a grim test for a largely poor region which lacks resources and emergency plans for natural disasters.

Salvadoran authorities issued a tsunami alert as a precaution after the tremor, which struck around 75 miles off the coast of El Salvador, at a depth of 20 miles beneath the Pacific Ocean, according to the US Geological Survey. The quake was first measured at a magnitude of 7.2 but was then downgraded.

"Hazardous" waves measuring about up to 1m (three feet) are possible to hit coastal areas within 300km of the quake's epicentre. Officials have warned anyone living on the Pacific coast of El Salvador to withdraw at least 1km away from the shore.

Aftershocks of greater than 4 continue/
