The U.S. Geological Survey is reporting a strong, but deep, earthquake in a northern Peruvian jungle region near Brazil.
There are no immediate reports of damage or injury in the quake, which was felt mildly in the capital of Lima.
The Colorado-based USGS says the quake was centered just north of the jungle city of Pucallpa and struck at 12:46 p.m. local time (1:46 p.m. EDT).
The quake occurred 90 miles underground. The deeper the quake, the less it is likely to be felt or to cause destruction.
