Earthquake Shakes Peru

LIMA, Peru (January 30, 2012)--The U.S. Geological Survey says an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.3 shook the coast of central Peru.

Monday's quake was at a depth of 24.4 miles and USGS maps showed the epicenter exactly on the Pacific Ocean coastline.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. No tsunami warning was issued.
