Two people died during a strong M7.1 earthquake that hit in the Pacific Ocean 40km SSW of Acari, Peru on January 14, 2017. Officials also report 65 injured. The quake hit offshore at 4:18 a.m. local time (0918 GMT) at a depth of around 36 km (22.4 miles). Several municipalities were without electricity, and many roads and adobe houses had collapsed, Osorio said. Many residents of Lomas, a coastal town, were evacuated after feeling an aftershock. Peruvian maritime authorities said the quake did not produce a tsunami on the coast. The quake was also felt in northern Chile, Peru’s southern neighbor.
