EARTHQUAKE NEWS UPDATE: Wednesday's 7.6 earthquake was the second strongest in Costa Rican history. It lasted for an amazingly long 45 seconds, and there have been more than 500 aftershocks. Officially, there were no casualties. The woman who died of a heart attack was not counted as an earthquake fatality.
A 7.6 quake in other areas of the world have at times caused thousands of deaths. Costa Rica has seismic standards in its building codes. Only 190 homes were destroyed, and no one was killed from falling debris. It helped that the epicenter of the earthquake was about 25 miles (40 km) deep under the earth's surface.
