Subscribe
On Thursday, a 6.3 magnitude earthquake shook the southern region of Peru, according to the US Geological Survey. The earthquake, originally reported as a 6.2 magnitude quake, has since been upgraded to a 6.3.

The quake originated roughly 19.9 miles beneath sea level, approximately 28 miles outside the town of Juliaca. Officials have said that the earthquake struck around 2:40 pm Pacific Standard Time.

​Peru's National Institute for Civil Defence (INDECI) reported multiple damaged homes after the earthquake.

"In Lampa, 8 collapsed homes reported and 40 were affected in the Paratia district," INDECI said on Twitter.

There were no immediate reports of casualties.
