An Earthquake of 4 degrees Registered in Ayacucho


The seismic movement occurred 41 kilometers west of the Chuschi district. It reached a depth of 86 kilometers.

Yesterday in the afternoon there was an earthquake in the south country, this time in the Ayacucho region, as reported by the Geophysical Institute of Peru. The seismic movement reached a magnitude of 4 degrees.

The institution explained that the seismic event occurred yesterday at 2:57 p.m. 41 kilometers west of the Chuschi district, in the province of Cangallo. The earthquake reached a depth of 86 kilometers. So far no physical or material damage has been reported by the earthquake in Ayacucho.

Similarly, in the morning there was a small earthquake in the north country, in the region of La Libertad, as reported by the IGP. The seismic movement, which occurred yesterday at 8:13 a.m., reached a magnitude of 4 degrees.

These seem to be the first seismic movements reported this year, which is something very important to keep in mind since there have been two already although we have not hit the 72 hours mark in 2018. It is worth mentioning that an earthquake is among the most worrying situations experts are trying to forecast in order to predict them before they actually take place.

What do you think about this? Do you think Peru is ready for an earthquake?
