Deadly natural disaster shakes southern Peru

Deadly natural disaster shakes southern Peru

At least two people were killed and 65 others injured when a magnitude 7.3 quake hit just off the southern coast of Peru on Sunday, sparking tsunami fears.

No victims had been reported so far.

INDECI said on Twitter that 65 people were injured.

The quake struck 124km (77 miles) south west of Puqio in the south of the country at a depth of 10km (6 miles).

Peru's health minister said an informal mine east of the coastal city of Chala collapsed.

Arequipa Governor Yamila Osorio said adobe houses had collapsed in some areas and landslides were blocking some roads.

People in Lomas were evacuating, Osorio stated.

There's a possibility of "hazardous tsunami waves" along the coast of Peru within 300 km of the epicenter, the agency warned.

In 1970 Peru faced the worst natural disaster in its history - the Ancash quake, more commonly known as the Great Peruvian quake. Chile's navy said the quake did not meet the conditions that would produce a tsunami off its coast.

In 2007 an natural disaster killed hundreds in the region of Ica in the country's south.

President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski said rescue teams were on their way to verify the extent of the damage.

The quake was also felt in northern Chile, Peru's southern neighbor.
