Nicaragua Earthquake Hits the Western Region of Nicaragua

It registered 6.1 on the Richter scale. The earthquake that struck Nicaragua on Thursday was responsible for 23 injuries and several residential areas were shaken to their foundations. 

This occurred in the town of Nagarote. The timing of the Nicaragua earthquake was 5:27 pm and the upper region of Lake Managua was the epicenter. About 30 minutes later an aftershock occurred too. 

It had a rating of 5.1 and struck on the southern shore of the lake. Earthquakes feature heavily along the western region of Nicaragua. 

This is due to the meeting point of the tectonic plates beneath the terrain. Besides the earthquakes there are many volcanoes present in the geology of the region. And they have been active since the year 1900. 

The Nicaragua earthquake caused damage and although it injured several human beings thankfully there was no loss of life. There have been several earthquakes in the western coastal region of the two Americas in recent days. 

This tectonic activity shows that there may be some shifting of the geological plates beneath the earth’s surface. And the people of the region are scared of the consequences of these warning signs from the planet. 

Earthquakes and other natural disasters occur when mankind’s activities prove detrimental to the earth. The phenomenon of fracking that is often undertaken to yield oil reserves stored in shale often causes earthquakes and tremors in other regions. 

And the pollution that is spread via mankind’s habit of letting loose poisonous solids, liquids and gases into the atmosphere is wreaking havoc with the weather. 

The overall global warming phenomenon is one that if not checked in the nick of time will probably fry us off the face of the planet. Therefore care is of the essence and the planet’s delicate balance must be maintained at all costs.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
