Two of the earthquakes were felt and two were not felt by the local communities.

Four new earthquakes registered today northwest of the district of Ucayali, at magnitudes of 6.5, 5.1, 4.6 and 5 on the Richter scale, reports the Geophysical Institute of Peru (IGP).

These quakes come days after the two 7.6 magnitude earthquakes that hit in the same zone of the Peruvian border with Brazil on Tuesday evening.

At the moment, no damages have been reported due to the earthquakes registered today.
