Magnitude 7.0 – NORTHERN PERU

A major magnitude 7.0 earthquake occurred in Northern Peru this afternoon.  At a depth of 145 km it shows minimal surface phases and because it is south of my location in northeastern Ohio the transverse S-phase arrival is strong.

The travel time information from the USGS Travel Time calculator is shown below:
