A 6.1-magnitude earthquake hit Panama on Sunday, injuring at least five people and causing damage to businesses and homes, officials said.
The strong quake struck at a depth of 37 kilometres in the far west of the country near the Costa Rican border, according to the US Geological Survey.
The National Civil Protection System, or Sinaproc, said five people were hurt and four homes were damaged in the quake, which hit 22 km from the town of Puerto Armuelles.
He reported damage to homes and businesses in the Central American nation.
Two of the damaged homes collapsed, Sinaproc added.
There was no tsunami alert issued from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.
Further north, two months earlier in September 2017, a 7.1-magnitude earthquake killed more than 300 people in Mexico.
