An earthquake of magnitude 4.6 occurred early afternoon on Friday 20 November 2020 at 3.48 pm local time near the village of Santa Rosa de Cashiboya, Peru, as reported by the Geophysics Institute of Peru (IGP).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at an intermediate to considerable depth of 152 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. Magnitude and other quake parameters can still change in the coming hours as the agency continues to process seismic data.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Santa Rosa de Cashiboya (pop. 200) located 19 km from the epicenter, San Roque (pop. 300) 25 km away, Holanda (pop. 400) 27 km away, Tumbes (pop. 200) 28 km away, Roaboya (pop. 800) 32 km away, Contamana (pop. 13,900) 38 km away, Pucallpa (pop. 310,800) 96 km away, and San Fernando (pop. 67,800) 98 km away.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available. If you’re in the area, please send us your experience through our reporting mechanism, either online or via our mobile app. This will help us provide more first-hand updates to anyone around the globe who wants to know more about this quake.
