An earthquake of magnitude 5.9 has struck southeastern Peru near Bolivias’s capital of La Paz.
Reuters is reporting that the quake was not felt by witnesses in the area, and there are no reports of damages or casualties.
According to NPR, the depth of this particular earthquake could help explain why it wasn’t felt more on the surface.
On Tuesday, there was an earthquake off the coast of American Samoa in the South Pacific. And earlier today there was one near the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
Are all three of these quakes related?
Researchers are looking into that possibility.
