Buildings collapse as 7.5 magnitude earthquake rocks northern Peru

LIMA, Nov 28: An earthquake struck northern Peru early on Sunday, the US Geological Survey said. It measured 7.5 on the Richter scale. The quake was extremely strong, but it occurred at 100 km depth in a sparsely populated region of the Amazon rainforest, 800 km from Capital Lima. It was at 5:52 am. Damage or casualties were not reported immediately.

Preliminary reports said some buildings were damaged and several roads blocked with rubble.

Reports said the tremblor shook Lima. Part of a 16th century church in La Jalca collapsed and three people were injured, Mayor Walter Culqui told Peru's RPP radio.

The quake was also felt in parts of Colombia, Brazil and Ecuador. Earthquakes are common in Peru, which falls within the Pacific Ring of Fire where 85% of the planet’s seismic activity takes place.

Details are awaited.

Earlier on Sunday another 5.2 earthquake hit the country with the epicentre in El Callao, Lima.

Peru's Machu Picchu is rich in archaeological sites. Recently Peru was in the news for the discovery of an 800 years old mummy.
