The U.S. Geological Survey says a 6-magnitude earthquake shook southern Panama Saturday. "Everyone started screaming," said Vanessa del Leon, who told CNN that she felt the earthquake in David, about 110 miles south of the earthquake's epicenter. "We heard a lot of things breaking and computer keyboards smashing on the floor. This hotel has eight floors and it swayed like a palm tree." There were no immediate reports of damage or injury from the quake, which hit about 238 miles southwest of the capital of Panama City. - UPI.
