A magnitude 4.7 earthquake near Camana, Provincia de Camaná, Arequipa, Peru, was reported only 15 minutes ago by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at an intermediate depth of 95 km beneath the epicenter early afternoon on Sunday 30 May 2021 at 3:51 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 5.0 earthquake.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Pedregal (pop. 14) located 33 km from the epicenter, Camana (pop. 16,400) 55 km away, and El Pedregal (pop. 20,100) 116 km away.
