  • Two killed, 17 missing after strong quake in Peru

A 7.1 natural disaster near the Pacific Coast of Central Peru at 4. triggers a tsunami warning at 4.42 am local time (EST) in Peru pm Sunday morning.

The 7.3 magnitude natural disaster struck about 124km south west of the town of Puquio, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said.

Governor of Arequipa province Yamila Osorio said on Twitter that a 55-year-old man had died after being crushed by a rock.

The quake struck 42 kilometers (26 miles) south-southwest of Acari at 0918 GMT on Sunday, USGS reported.

"The victim reportedly found in Bella Union has not been confirmed", Chavez said.

But Peru's Health Minister, Abel Salinas, later said a rescue team at the mine said there were not 17 missing, according to local media.

The powerful tremor caused homes and roads to collapse and left several municipalities without power.

Earthquakes are common in Peru, but many homes are built with precarious materials that can not withstand them.

The quake was also felt in northern Chile, Peru's southern neighbour.

Peru officials reported one person killed and damaged adobe structures.

About 65 people were injured in the quake, and 17 were missing after an informal mine east of the coastal city of Chala collapsed, authorities said.
