4.8 quake 16 km WSW of Tournavista, Peru, 12 Nov 7.29 pm (GMT -5)
An earthquake of magnitude 4.8 occurred only 22 minutes ago 73 km southwest of Pucallpa, Peru, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) reported.
The quake hit at a moderately shallow depth of 46.9 km beneath the epicenter early evening on Thursday 12 November 2020 at 7.29 pm 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 European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.8 earthquake as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc. Weak shaking might have been felt in Tournavista (pop. 900) located 16 km from the epicenter, Honoria (pop. 800) 27 km away, San Alejandro (pop. 3,600) 44 km away, Campoverde (pop. 8,900) 56 km away, Santa Rosa de Dinamarca (pop. 400) 56 km away, Caimito (pop. 600) 59 km away, San Fernando (pop. 67,800) 72 km away, and Pucallpa (pop. 310,800) 73 km away.
