Guatemala Earthquake Today: 2010?

There was an earthquake in Guatemala today january 18 2010. According to the US Geological Survey, it was a 6.0- magnitude earthquake and it hit near the Pacific coast of Guatemala.
The 7.0 magnitude earthquake in Haiti was pretty destructive so maybe this earthquake in Guatemala can produce the same effects today, let's pray to god it doens't.
What is the situation in Guatemala today? Did anyone die?
How many more earthquakes are we going to have in 2010?

The epicenter of the earthquake was 60 miles south east of Guatemala City, the country's capital. The quake was also felt in El Salvador and Mexico.
Civil protection officials in Guatemala say so far there are no reports of injuries or damage, but authorities are still checking.
Today's quake registered at 9.40am local time (2.40am AEDT ) in an area 39km west-southwest of Ahuachapan, El Salvador and 53km west-southwest of Cuilapa, Guatemala.
People should be scared there today. And you're right, we've had lots of earthquakes so far and we're just starting 2010.
