Earthquake in Costa Rica

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Costa Rica tonight.

A strong earthquake registering 6.2 on the Richter scale†struck the country this afternoon. CFCA staff found sponsored families panicked but unharmed during initial assessments today.

We’ve posted a story on the CFCA Web site with reports from San†Jose CFCA coordinator Rafael Villalobos, and we will keep you updated on the Web site as more information becomes available.
