UPDATE: Felt report received from LIMA, Peru
“I was at the office in san isidro in a 5th floor. No noise at all but it waved, we all were evacuated.
After 30 minutes we all went back to work.But my husband was in my
house in La Molina and he felt a moderate to strong shaking and very noisy.”
Very strong deep earthquake with possibilty of some damage.
Due to its depth it was felt on a very wild scale.
The epicenter was close to the Brazilian border.
Telephone lines were down in the area.
We have no information about damage or injuries at this time.
The earthquake was registered first as a magnitude 6.8 quake.
Peru’s Institute of Geophysics registered the quake’s magnitude at 7.
We can see a large number of visitors from the USA. We want to inform them,
that even if this earthquake had higher magnitude than the Virginia one,
the hypocenter of the quake was much deeper. This is the reason why we do not expect
severe damage from the area. The deeper the hypocenter is
- Peru 145 km (90 miles)/ Virginia 6 km (3.7 miles) – ,

the shake will be less violent.

The page is regularly updated to add new earthquakes.
green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries
orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries
red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries
