Just 23 minutes ago, a 4.8-magnitude earthquake struck near Minas de Marcona, Provincia de Nazca, Ica, Peru. The tremor was recorded early evening on Wednesday 20 January 2021 at 7:27 pm local time, at a shallow depth of 10 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the first seismological agency to report it.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 4.8 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.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Hacienda Ullujaya (pop. 250) located 41 km from the epicenter, Minas de Marcona (pop. 15,500) 55 km away, Palpa (pop. 5,900) 60 km away, San Juan de Marcona (pop. 12,800) 61 km away, Nazca (pop. 23,600) 66 km away, and Santiago (pop. 10,400) 87 km away.
