(CNN) -- Three major earthquakes struck Peru on Wednesday evening -- a magnitude 7.7, then two magnitude 7.5 quakes a moment later, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The first two quakes struck offshore, while the third was on land.


Three Quakes of this magnitude? I've heard of aftershock... but this is almost unheard of.

Not three earthquakes! Whoever wrote that haven't spent much time on the USGS website. It's the same earthquake. Only one earthquake.

Is there more information about this? Like is this going to affect the gulf of mexico? Or along the other side? I would think if there are going to be any after affects that hit the US, they would surely issue some warnings here. But big waves are different, you dont get much warning.
Im on clearwater beach, would be nice to know, as I will be the first to go.

Reuters reporting 2 earthquakes as well, Helmutt, is this still a case of misinterpreting the USGS data?


Powerful earthquakes hit Peru

LIMA, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Two powerful earthquakes within minutes of each other struck Peru on Wednesday shaking buildings in the capital and cutting power in some areas.

The first quake, with a magnitude of 7.7, hit about 20 miles (33 km) west of Chincha Alta, at a shallow 11.2 miles (18 km) from the earth's surface, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

It said the second had a magnitude of 7.5.

No Warnings have been issued for the east side of the continents.
Not yet if at all. I'm tuned into CNN and watching- i will certainly let you know.

Right now, USGS has only one earthquake at Mag 7.5

At first the data is not certain. When they get more data, they might update their quake page, often making the old pages "404 missing". Whenever they update their data at USGS, the RSS feed is "bumped" with a new entry. People who are unfamiliar with this and only watches the RSS feed, may believe that there were a lot of earthquakes when there was in fact just one.

The USGS initially reported three earthquakes, but revised its report, blaming a computer glitch.

CNN

Now they're saying it was just the one -- magnitude of 7.5

Thanks Hellmutt,

As of right now the reports are at one 7.5 mag quake,

It's great to have people experienced at disseminating the USGS data here on ATS.



ED:correctly spell ATS's USGS data disseminators username..... my apologies.

Here's some of the Tsunami warning info:


Major earthquake strikes Peru; tsunami warning issued


(CNN) -- A magnitude 7.5 earthquake struck off the coast of central Peru on Wednesday evening, prompting a tsunami warning for that country, as well as Chile, Ecuador and Colombia.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center also issued a tsunami watch for Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador , Mexico and Honduras, and a tsunami advisory for Hawaii.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries from the quake, though there were power outages in Lima, the capital, Reuters reported, and people ran into the streets in panic as the tremor shook office buildings.

First I've herd of it.

But it's 0200 UK and it was BBC's first story.

Tsunami is said to be for Ecuador - how can that be right?? Ecuador is just north of Peru, I would of thought a tsunami wave would head AWAY from (in this case) Peru - and into the Pacific.
