Deep powerful earthquake jolts Pucallpa, Peru

Earthquake Report comment :
Powerful earthquake but very deep which decreases the impact a lot.
A III to IV MM will be felt in a very vast area, although Earthquake Report does not expect the earthquake to be dangerous. IV MM = light shaking.
Epicenter at a distance of only 70 km from Pucallpa (population 310,750). USGS estimates Pucallpa as a III MM
the earthquake occurred in the beginning of the afternoon (2:01 PM)
The heaviest recent earthquake in the area occurred at May 30 1990. 135 people lost their live. It measured M 6.5. The epicenter of this killing earthquake was more north.
