The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported a magnitude 4.5 quake in Peru near Nazca, Provincia de Nazca, Ica, only 11 minutes ago. The earthquake hit in the morning on Wednesday 26 May 2021 at 7:10 am local time at a moderately shallow depth of 55 km. 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 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 24 km from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Palpa (pop. 5,900) located 36 km from the epicenter, Nazca (pop. 23,600) 56 km away, Marcona (pop. 15,500) 65 km away, Santiago (pop. 10,400) 67 km away, Los Aquijes (pop. 7,800) 75 km away, San Juan de Marcona (pop. 12,800) 77 km away, Ica (pop. 246,800) 80 km away, and Subtanjalla (pop. 9,100) 86 km away.
VolcanoDiscovery will automatically update magnitude and depth if these change and follow up if other significant news about the quake become available.
