AN earthquake of magnitude 5.5 reported in Peru

According to data from Volcano Discovery, a quake measuring a magnitude of 5.5 was reported near Ciudad Satelite, Provincia de Arequipa in Peru at 12;48 local time on Wednesday, December 16.

The German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported that the earthquake occurred at a depth of 86 kilometres but the agency has advised that the exact details may be revised as seismologists continue to review the data.
