TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) - Officials are urging calm after a magnitude-7.1 quake rocked Honduras and Belize, killing four people and wounding 40 more.
Honduras was jolted by a 4.8 aftershock just three hours after the original temblor early this morning.
More than two dozen homes crumbled and a huge section of a bridge that connects Honduras' second-largest city with the rest of
the Central American country has collapsed. Fire officials say a
midsection of the bridge "fell into the river."
Honduras has shuttered schools and much of Belize was plunged into darkness. Electricity, telephones and Internet connections
were cut across a large part of Honduras.
The quake was felt strongly in El Salvador, Guatemala and
northern Nicaragua, but no damage was reported there.
