    these are only 1 minute apart
    The magnitude is a preliminary one and could change

    well this turned into a tricky situation
    After the M 7.3 ( downgraded from 7.4), Central America there was a M 6.1 (USGS), M6.5(GNS Geological and Nuclear Sciences, NZ)
    which because it was closer to me arrived first. And buried in its signal is the P and S arrivals of the M7.3
