Update Tue, 7 Dec 2021, 09:51
Significant 5.6 quake hits near Arica, Provincia de Arica, Region de Arica y Parinacota, Chile
5.6 quake 7 Dec 4:39 am (GMT -5)
5.6 quake 7 Dec 4:39 am (GMT -5)
An earthquake of magnitude 5.6 occurred only 12 minutes ago 94 km southwest of Arica, Peru, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported.
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter near Arica, Provincia de Arica, Region de Arica y Parinacota, Chile, early morning on Tuesday, December 7th, 2021, at 4:39 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.
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.
In Boca del Rio (pop. 220) located 83 km from the epicenter, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Arica (pop. 186,000) located 94 km from the epicenter, Tacna (pop. 280,100) 125 km away, Pacocha (pop. 7,600) 126 km away, and Ilo (pop. 53,500) 127 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.
