Wow! 8.0 is terrifying. Any other reports from Peru yet?

There was nothing on the news tonight, they were too busy covering the survival of that missing hiker from Maui...

They report only one fatality & 12 injured so far. Epicenter was obviously in the middle of nowhere (in the middle of a national park, to be precise); given that this was the second strongest earthquake Peru ever had, there seems to be thankfully mostly structural damage (collapsed buildings).
Albeit they had several smaller quakes nearby in the 2 days following the big one.

A shady story if you ask me.
Relieved to hear that the earthquake has so far only made a few victims.

I know this might sound a bit sad but I have an earthquake app on my phone. Iím really interested in geology and studied earthquakes as part of my teaching post grad degree a few years ago. Nothing regarding a 8.0 in Peru on that date flashed up. Iíve just received a notification regarding an earthquake in the Philippines at 6.1. I have two earthquakes in Peru on 28th measuring 4.6 and 4.7 but nothing on the 26th or 27th. Maybe a magnitude 8 was too intense to measure? Nothing in our UK news either and would have thought something of that magnitude would be reported?

Thank goodness that the epicenter was in a remote area of the country.

I have bookmarked this page
http://www.gdacs.org
They give pretty good summaries, not only for earthquakes, but every natural disaster.

For the Peru quake, they have the following details
http://www.gdacs.org/repo...=1261726&eventtype=EQ
150,000 people in 100 kms around.

Here's another site that tracks earthquakes worldwide:
https://earthquake.usgs.gov/

It will show earthquakes by continent as well with depth, intensity and tsunami if under water.

The app that I have is called QuakeFeed. It sends me notifications for any earthquake that hits 4.0 or above on The Richter scale. There have been three in Albania in the last hour.

There's been a huge clusters of tremors all along the West Coast of the US and now Peru has a huge earthquake. Sending prayers for the people there, don't we have a Disher from there?

Where are the cluster quakes happening? I live in Southern California, we havenít had any quakes in ages.
