A 7.0-magnitude earthquake hit a remote Amazon region of Peru on Wednesday, reports Reuters.
The quake's epicenter was located near the town of Pucallpa, which is located in the central-eastern portion of the country.
According to local media reports, buildings were shaking as far away as the Lima, Peru's capital city that is about 370 miles, or 600 kilometers, away from Pucallpa. There have been no immediate reports of damages or injuries, although Reuters said phone service went out in parts of Eastern Peru.
It comes on the heels of Tuesday's earthquake on the U.S. East Coast, affecting cities such as Washington D.C. and New York.
