Nov 28 (Reuters) – A 7.5-magnitude earthquake struck northern Peru about 40 kilometers from the city of Barranca in the early hours of Sunday, the United States Geological Survey reported.
There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries from the earthquake, which was felt as far as the capital, Lima.
The earthquake occurred at a depth of more than 100 kilometers, which limited the shaking.
The Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center said in a tweet that the earthquake occurred in a very sparsely populated region of the Amazon rainforest.
The US warning system said there was no tsunami warning after the earthquake.
