Magnitude 5.6 Earthquake on the Peru-Equador border.

The United States Geological Survey recorded a Magnitude 5.6 Earthquake at a depth of 50.8 km, on the border between Peru and Ecuador, roughly 39 km to the east of the city of Papayal in Zarumila Province, Peru, slightly before 6.34 am local time (slightly before 11.35 am GMT) on Monday 5 June 2017. This event was felt across much of northern Peru, as well as southern Ecuador, though there are few reports of any damage or casualties, with two people injured and one hose damaged in Peru and no known problems in Ecuador. This is roughly what would be expected from an Earthquake of this size at this depth; the quake is big enough to be felt over a wide area, but most of its energy has dissipated before the shock-waves reach the surface.

Peru is on the west coast of South America and the western margin of the South American Plate, close to where the Nazca Plate, which underlies part of the east Pacific, is being subducted along the Peru-Chile Trench. The Nazca Plate passes under the South American Plate as it sinks into the Earth, this is not a smooth process and the plates repeatedly stick together then break apart as the pressure builds up, causing Earthquakes. As the Nazca Plate sinks further it is partially melted by the friction and the heat of the Earth's interior. Some of this melted material then rises through the overlying South American Plate, fuelling the volcanoes of Peru and neighbouring countries.

Witness accounts of Earthquakes can help geologists to understand these events, and the structures that cause them. The international non-profit organisation Earthquake Report is interested in hearing from people who may have felt this event; if you felt this quake then you can report it to Earthquake Report here.
