A 5.3-magnitude earthquake was recorded in Peru, according to the Euro-Mediterranean Seismic Center.
It is noteworthy that the epicenter of the quake occurred at a distance of 217 km southeast of the city of Ica, at a depth of 33 km.
Generally, quakes of this magnitude are recorded by more than one agency and the results can vary, with subsequent reports that come in after the first one often showing more accuracy.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should have been widely felt by almost everyone in the area of the epicenter. It might have caused light to moderate damage.
Earlier, seismologists recorded a 6-magnitude tremor off the coast of Indonesia.
