5.1 quake 13 Sep 11:33 am (GMT -5)
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at an intermediate to considerable depth of 200 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 5.1 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Cupe (pop. 47) located 11 km from the epicenter, Atuncolla (pop. 12,700) 19 km away, Juliaca (pop. 245,700) 25 km away, Lampa (pop. 4,800) 32 km away, Santa Lucia (pop. 4,300) 32 km away, Puno (pop. 116,600) 40 km away, Ilave (pop. 16,000) 86 km away, and Ayaviri (pop. 19,300) 88 km away.
