New magnitude-6.6 quake shakes Nicaragua; hundreds of homes damaged from earlier quake

A magnitude-6.6 earthquake shook Nicaragua on Friday afternoon, sending people running frightened into the streets less than 24 hours after a magnitude-6.1 quake rattled the country. There were no immediate reports of new casualties or serious damage. People rushed into the streets after the latest quake. In the hardest-hit town of Nagarote, about 45 kilometres (27 miles) north of Managua, people began to clean up after the damage the strong quake caused to their homes and businesses. Meanwhile, the government raised the number of people injured in the Thursday evening quake from 23 to 200. It also said that a 23-year-old woman had died of an apparent heart attack after the quake. In the capital city of Managua, 300 homes were damaged and at least 20 were destroyed by the quake, according to city officials. Authorities ordered the demolition of two old buildings that had withstood the earthquake of 1972, which killed 10-thousand people.
