A strong earthquake shook coastal Peru early Monday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
No tsunami warning was issued.
The magnitude 6.3 quake hit about 15 kilometers (9 miles) southeast of Ica, at a depth of 39.2 kilometers (24.4 miles).
Hotels in the area reported brief power outages, but no damage.
My prayers for everyones' safety. I noticed this is to the east of Brazil, which is a breathtaking country. I have rarely heard of a tsunami resulting from a 6.3 EQ, of course there are variables.
