An Earthquake of 7.1 Magnitude rocks the country of Honduras

A 7.1 magnitude quake with an epicenter 80 miles northeast
of La Ceiba, Honduras awoke the residents of the Bay islands this morning at 3:24 am.

I have spoken to a resident of Guanaja and they
said that they had experienced a very big shake but that all
seemed to be well on the island. This resident also said that
residents of Bonacca were very concerned about a possible
Tsunami warning which had been issued. This warning has since
been rescinded.
After doing some research I was able to find the last date
of a powerful quake to hit Honduras. This quake was 6.5 in
magnitude and occurred in 1999.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all affected by this tragedy.
