A TSUNAMI warning has been issued after a 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck Central America as a hurricane barrelled through the region.
The US Pacific Warning Center said hazardous tsunami waves are possible within 186miles of the quake epicentre in El Salvador.
The warning came just minutes after a 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck at 12.44pm local time (6.44pm GMT) at a depth of 20miles, about 96miles south-southwest of Puerto Triunfo in El Salvador, according to the US Geological Survey.
H/t reader squodgy:
