BREAKING: Strong quake jolts northern Peru, Ecuador

A strong earthquake with its epicenter off Ecuador shook northern Peru and much of Ecuador Saturday, authorities said.

The 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck at 12:12 local time (17:12 GMT), with its epicenter 52 miles (85 kilometers) northeast of the Peruvian city of Zarumilla, near the border with Ecuador, the National Seismological Center of Peru reported.



The Head of Peru’s seismic institute, Hernando Tavera, told RPP radio that the epicenter was off the coast of Ecuador’s largest city Guayaquil.


“As far as we know, there is no significant damage to buildings or people,” he added.
