Washington - Bolivia and Costa Rica were struck by strong earthquakes with magnitudes of up to 5.3 on the Richter scale on Saturday, the US Geological Survey reported. Bolivia was hit by two quakes within an hour, one with a magnitude 5.3 and other 5.2, the Virginia-based earthquake monitoring centre reported.

The border region of Costa Rica and Panama experienced two quakes in the same time period, one a magnitude of 5.2 and the other 4.7.

There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.

The earthquake that devastated Haiti on January 12 registered 7.0 on the Richter scale.

5.2 and 4.7 are noticeable but by no means "major".

When I lived in Costa Rica as a kid it was a year after the major one that hit (1991 7.6 raised the reef etc). We got hit with a 6.7 while at the beach and the locals acted like it was nothing.
