An earthquake of magnitude 5.6 was felt on Thursday, July 22, in the province of Chiriquí, which again alerted the security entities, after the region was shaken yesterday by an earthquake of magnitude 7.

The Institute of Geosciences of Panama confirmed this morning the 5.6 tremor, which occurred 18 hours after the one registered yesterday afternoon.

In addition, the authorities reported that after yesterday's 7-degree earthquake, 30 more aftershocks were registered.
