There was a large, 7.6-magnitude earthquake today in Costa Rica. The epicenter was on the rough and hilly Nicoya Peninsula, near a little village called Hojancha, 84 miles from the capital and largest city, San Juan.

Two people were killed and "at least 20" injured according to the report from the Christian Science Monitor.

This peninsula is on the Pacific side of the country, so this quake is rim-of-fire activity, which I always find interesting.
