4.4 quake 87 km west of Espinar, Cusco, Peru, Jun 11, 2022 4:23 am (GMT -5)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.4 occurred only 24 minutes ago 87 km west of Espinar, Peru, the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported.
The quake hit at an intermediate depth of 100 km beneath the epicenter near Espinar, Provincia de Espinar, Cusco, Peru, early morning on Saturday, June 11th, 2022, at 4:23 am local time. 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 citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, which listed it as a magnitude 4.5 earthquake. A third agency, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), reported the same quake at magnitude 4.5.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Yavina (pop. 110) located 18 km from the epicenter, Santo Tomas (pop. 4,100) 35 km away, Orcopampa (pop. 5,600) 61 km away, and Espinar (pop. 23,900) 87 km away.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available.
