With an epicenter in Puno, the telluric movement was recorded at 3:50 am at a depth of 270 kilometers. This means that even if it was a high-magnitude quake it occurred very deep and the repercussions will not be very high.
“The director of the Civil Defense Institute in Puno, Javier Pampamalco Choque, told RPP Noticias that the northern provinces of Puno, including Azángaro (where the epicenter was located), felt the earthquake in a ‘mild to moderate’ range, while the provinces of Sandia and Carabaya was ‘moderate to strong’, this media reported.
Pampamalco stressed that there is no registered damage to infrastructure or people.
However, in Arequipa, rock falls were reported in the Costanera road and people evacuated the beaches of Camaná.
