Normally earthquakes that occur near Guatemala are on the Pacific side of the country. Yesterday, however, we had one right here on the Rio Dulce, near the Golfete. No damage has been reported as far as the Rio Dulce Chisme can determine...just a bit more rocking and rolling on the water, and it was also felt on land.

The Guatemala government agency that monitors seismologic events says it was a 4.1 magnitude, Latitude:15.7259, Longitude: 88.8375, Time of Origin: 2018-01-17 19:42:42, Depth: 10
