An earthquake earlier Friday injured 200 and was linked to one death.
The president of Nicaragua issued the country’s highest earthquake alert level Friday as ongoing aftershocks rock the area after a 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck the country earlier in the day, the Associated Press reports.
The alert forced some schools to close and 155 people in at-risk areas to be evacuated.
The government said 200 people were injured and one 23-year-old woman died of a heart attack after the initial earthquake. It also said 800 homes were damaged in the town of Nagarote, about 30 miles northwest of the capital, Managua.
