The quake struck 71 miles east of Palora with a depth of 82 miles.

A deep magnitude-7.5 quake struck the Peru-Ecuador border region early on Friday morning, the US Geological Survey said. The epicenter was in a sparsely populated area 224km (140 miles) east-southeast of Ambato, Ecuador, at a depth of 132km. The USGS's initial reading had assessed the quake, which occurred at 5.17 a.m. loacl time (3.47 p.m. IST), at magnitude 7.7. Around 20 minutes later the Ecuadorian city of Guayaqull was rocked by a 5.5 magnitude natural disaster at 10.40pm GMT, the US Geological Survey reports.
