A magnitude 4.7 earthquake was reported 36 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a moderately shallow depth of 37 km beneath the epicenter in the morning on Monday 2 November 2020 at 8.42 am local time. Magnitude and other quake parameters can still change in the coming hours as the agency continues to process seismic data.
Our monitoring service at VolcanoDiscovery identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.7 as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Towns or cities where the quake likely was felt include Santa Bárbara (pop. 700) located 47 km from the epicenter and likely affected by weak shaking, Casa Blanca (pop. 600) located 48 km from the epicenter and likely affected by weak shaking, Lima (pop. 7,737,000) located 116 km from the epicenter and likely affected by weak shaking, and Callao (pop. 813,300) located 117 km from the epicenter and likely affected by weak shaking.
This story will be updated soon by VolcanoDiscovery. If you’re in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.
