An earthquake of 5.0 on the Richter scale has shaken the center of Colombia on last Saturday May 24 at 14:20 local time. The center of the earthquake was in El Calvario, Meta State, at 13 kilometers east of Bogotá. Six persons died and more than 700 were affected by the shake that destroyed several houses, especially on the Bogotá – Villavicencio highway where there was a land sliding over some cars in Puente Quetame, causing the close of the road. In Bogotá the people set in panic, but there were not many damage out of two houses.
