尼加拉瓜一周内遭三次地震袭击

    尼加拉瓜一周内遭三次地震袭击
    A 5.1-magnitude earthquake shook Nicaragua on Sunday night, the third quake to hit the Central American nation within a week.
    上周日晚,一场5.1级地震袭击尼加拉瓜,这是该国一周内发生的第三次地震。
    Managuans spent the night in the streets as a number of aftershocks hit the capital
    Seven homes collapsed but there have so far been no reports of any casualties.
    Officials said the quakes could be an indication that the geological fault line which runs underneath the capital, Managua, has been re-activated.
    Movement in the Estadia fault caused the 1972 quake which killed at least 5,000 people and devastated Managua.
    Nicaragua was struck by another two earthquakes on Thursday and Friday last week, raising fears a bigger quake may hit "within days".
    Quick response
    The US Geological Survey (USGS) said Sunday's quake struck at 23:07 local time some 6km northwest of Managua.
    The USGS said it had a magnitude of 5.1, but local seismologists(地震学家) put its magnitude at 5.6.
    President Daniel Ortega said the quick response of residents, who fled their homes when they felt the tremor, prevented any deaths.
    The president said there had been reports of injuries, but did not give further details.
    Angelica Munoz of Ineter, the Nicaraguan state body which monitors tremors, said there had been nine aftershocks following Sunday's quake.
    She said one of the aftershocks had originated in the fault line which caused the 1972 earthquake, in which large parts of Managua's city centre were destroyed and two thirds of its one million residents displaced.
