  • 8 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Peru

A large earthquake has reportedly hit North-Central Peru, a U.S. Geological Survey reported.

The quake, at a moderate depth of 114 kilometers (71 miles) struck at 2:41 a.m., 80 kilometers (50 miles) southeast of the village of Lagunas and 98 kilometer (158 kilometers) east-northeast of the larger town of Yurimaguas. Earthquakes that are closer to the surface generally cause more destruction.
