In February, a deep magnitude-7.5 quake struck the Peru-Ecuador border region causing tremors the Ecuadorian president said were felt around the country. The quake struck at 12:50 a.m. PST (08:50 GMT).

As of now there are no reports of harm to people or property. The USGS's initial reading assessed the quake, which occurred at 5:17 am local time (1017 GMT), at magnitude 7.7.

Senators fire head coach Guy Boucher
The Senators sent a first-round pick to the Avalanche in the deal and now that selection could be first overall this year. Crawford, 58, is a Stanley Cup winning coach, and is in his third season as a member of the Senators coaching staff.

The seismic region stretches along the Pacific Ocean coastlines, where the Pacific Plate grinds against other plates that form the Earth's crust.

It is not thought that the natural disaster will trigger a Pacific-wide tsunami.

A magnitude 7.0 quake was recorded early Friday morning in Peru, according to the United States Geological Survey.
