At MANAGEMENT, we provide daily information about vibrations in Peru. This Sunday, September 4, we will update you on the latest earthquakes in Lima and other regions nationally. Peru’s Geophysical Institute publishes details of seismic activity every day, and we tell you all about it.
What information does Sensis provide? Data such as epicenter, magnitude, exact time, along with other details of recent earthquakes in Peru.
Likewise, it collects data obtained in real time by the National Seismic Network from velocity sensors and other instruments that monitor tectonic plates (Nasca and South American) and any geological phenomenon that creates seismic movement.
What are the seismic zones in Peru?
According to the National Institute of Civil Defense (INDESI), Peru’s entire coastal zone is one of the most vulnerable to high-magnitude earthquakes.
“During the past 500 years of history, all cities near the coastal zone have been affected by earthquakes to a lesser or greater extent. At the same time, depending on the morphology of its coastlines, tsunamis are present in specific areas with greater intensity,” the agency notes in an official statement.
Likewise, Indesi notes that other areas of the Andean region, including Huytaballana (Jún), Ayacucho, Cuzco, Abanque, and Arequipa, are prone to strong seismicity due to the presence of important reverse and normal fault systems.
How can you prepare?
During an earthquake, Indeci officials recommend remaining calm and identifying safe areas inside and outside the home to avoid worrying about personal damage.
Additionally, they advise having an emergency backpack containing tools, a portable radio and basic non-perishable canned food.
