A powerful 7.4-magnitude earthquake shook the Pacific coast of Central America on Tuesday.
According to CNN, the quake killed at least one person in El Salvador when it struck close to the El Salvador shoreline creating a risk of "hazardous tsunami waves", the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said in a revised alert, reports the New York Post.
El Salvador's Ministry of Weather and Natural Resources initially issued a tsunami warning for the coastal regions, saying the quake was felt throughout the country but later downgraded it to a tsunami alert.
The area of a possible tsunami included the coasts of Nicaragua, Honduras and El Salvador within 180 miles of the epicenter, the warning center said, the Telegraph reports.
