Powerful very deep earthquake in Southern Peru

Earthquake Report comment :
The epicenter of this earthquake was in the middle of the Cuzco, Lake Titicaca area. With a depth of 177 km a lot of people should have felt a very weak tremor.  As it happened in the middle of the Peruvian and Bolivian night, most people will have slept through it.
GDACS has issued a GREEN earthquake report shortly after the earthquake occurred = very limited chance on damage and/or injuries.
Closest villages are Carmi and Santa Rosa.

Most important Earthquake Data:
Magnitude : Mi 5.9

Depth (Hypocenter) : 177 km
Geo-location(s) :

M 4.7      2010/08/27 22:14   Depth 40.6 km FOX ISLANDS, ALEUTIAN ISLANDS, ALASKA
Aftershock in a beautiful volcano scenery.

M 5.7      2010/08/27 19:23   Depth 10.0 km NORTHERN IRAN
See detailed report :  Dangerous shallow earthquake in Northern Iran

M 4.3   2010/08/27 15:52   Depth 108 km TARAPACA, CHILE
Very deep, not dangerous. Epicenter in the high desert of Chile

M 4.7   2010/08/27   15:49   Depth 34 km SOUTHWEST OF SUMATRA, INDONESIA
30 km from this island of Enggano. Not dangerous.

M 4.2   2010/08/27   15:25   Depth 147 km HINDU KUSH REGION, AFGHANISTAN
Scarcely populated area.

M 4.6   2010/08/27 14:42   Depth 60 km NORTHWESTERN KASHMIR
Epicenter near a mountain summit at an altitude of 4500 meter.  I have included an altitude map of this beautiful area.
At M 4.6 and a depth of 60 km, we do not think this earthquake will be dangerous. The terrain is however very dangerous for landslides as it is completely surrounded by high mountains.

M 4.7      2010/08/27 12:32   Depth 35.2 km OFF THE EAST COAST OF KAMCHATKA, RUSSIA
Out of the coast of volcano rich Kamchatka.

M 4.1   2010/08/27 11:07   Depth 1 km
SOUTHERN XINJIANG, CHINA
Western Tibet. Very shallow, near the border with Kyrgyzstan. Not powerful enough to cause damage.

M 5.2      2010/08/27 09:10   Depth 35.0 km SOUTH SANDWICH ISLANDS REGION
Same area as the M 5.3 shock earlier today, but this time with a shallower hypocenter. A beautiful example of a volcano arc archipelago (The South American Plate is subducting the smaller South Sandwich Plate and creates the Volcano Arc).
In the upper left corner of the satellite map is South Georgia, well known to Antarctica travellers.

M 4.8   2010/08/27 08:03   Depth 46 km NEW BRITAIN REGION, P.N.G.
About 40 km out of the coast and just on the trench (see satellite image by clicking on this link)

M 5.0      2010/08/27 06:42   Depth 114.3 km EASTERN NEW GUINEA REG, PAPUA NEW GUINEA
Luckily very deep not causing any danger. With an epicenter very near many villages close to the highlands highway, it would have been a potentially dangerous earthquake.

M 5.1      2010/08/27 04:40   Depth 133.6 km     NORTHERN PERU
This relatively deep earthquake has been felt by the population of Pucallpa as a weak to light shaking. Epicenter just next to Contamana.

M 5.0      2010/08/27 00:56   Depth 35.0 km      SOUTHERN SUMATRA, INDONESIA
60 km out of the coast. The shock will be felt in the coastal areas, but is not dangerous

M 5.3      2010/08/27 00:17   Depth 130.9 km      SOUTH SANDWICH ISLANDS REGION
Close to a number of uninhabited active volcanic islands (they are though real bird paradise islands, with thousands of penguins).  The panoramio picture shows icebergs (due to the relatively close Antarctic continent  – see map above) .

Minor earthquakes are earthquakes without or with little damage risk.  In most cases these earthquakes have a Magnitude smaller than M 5.0 OR earthquakes with an hypocenter (depth) of more than 100 km OR earthquakes up to M 5.9 with an epicenter far away from populated areas.

Peru – M 5.0 – Moderate and deep earthquake in the greater Cuzco area

Earthquake Report comment :
Luckily this earthquake occurred deep in the earth, otherwise it would have been very dangerous. The epicenter is located very near to a number of Andean villages and towns.

Update 8:56 UTC : El Comercio (Peru) : El departamento de Apurímac fue estremecido al filo de la medianoche por un sismo que inquietó a la población pero no causó daños materiales ni humanos que lamentar.
