The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake's epicentre was 173 kilometres from the town of Iberia, in Peru's Madre de Dios region.

Latest from the U.S. Geological Survey
A major quake of magnitude 7.5 struck the Peruvian-Brazilian border in the Amazon basin on Tuesday, the U.S. Geological Survey said, but there were no immediate reports of damage.

The quake, initially reported as a magnitude 7.1, was felt all the way to the south of Peru, close to the Chilean border, according to local media. The quake could also be felt in the capital of Lima, 681 kilometres away to the west, witnesses said.

Peru's Geophysics Institute reported an initial quake of magnitude 7.3 followed by one of magnitude 7.2.

The main quake's epicentre was located 296 kilometres northwest of the Peruvian city of Puerto Maldonado.

It was very deep, 602 kilometres below ground, and in a sparsely populated jungle area of the Amazon"

The USGS said a second quake, of magnitude 5.9, struck nearby a few minutes later, also very deep.
