An earthquake of magnitude 5.7 occurred only 9 minutes ago 96 km northeast of Tarapaca, Brazil, the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake reported.
The quake hit at a shallow depth of 10 km beneath the epicenter near Tarapaca, Tarapacá, Amazonas, Colombia, in the morning on Saturday, August 6th, 2022, at 7:26 am local time. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
