A 5.3-magnitude earthquake was recorded yesterday morning in the Ucayali region in the province Padre Abad, 15 kilometers north of the Curimaná district.
According to information from Andina News Agency, no damages or injured people were reported, so far.
It was also known that the earthquake occurred at 11:06 am at a depth of 125 kilometers.
This news agency also explains that in Peru there is an emergency number anyone in the country can use in case of an earthquake or other critical situation.
By calling from a landline or mobile number 119, the person can communicate through text messages or voicemail without saturating the phone lines. The service is free to use.
From a mobile phone you would need to dial 119, then 1, and then the number you wish to call. You can leave a voicemail. The person will then receive a text message indicating they have a voicemail and to recover it they would need to dial 119, then 2, then their own number.
