The Salvadoran Ministry of the Environment reported that the epicenter of the tremor was located 66 kilometers south of El Espino beach, in the department of Usulután.

He also indicated that the depth of the telluric movement was 51 kilometers, in the subduction zone of the Pacific where the Cocos and Caribbean plates collide.

Despite the magnitude of the tremor, the Salvadoran authorities ruled out issuing the threat of a tsunami.

In Honduras, the early warning coordinator of the Permanent Contingency Commission, Juan José Reyes, reported that the earthquake was felt throughout the Honduran territory and with greater force in the Gulf of Fonseca, which they share with El Salvador and Nicaragua.

The Nicaraguan Institute of Territorial Studies indicated that the earthquake had a magnitude of 6.5 and specified that no damage or affected people have been reported in the country.

The Central American region registers high seismicity because it is located in the Pacific Ring of Fire, as well as due to the activity of its volcanic chain.
