There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries, said Mario Casareto, spokesman for Peru’s fire agency. He said authorities were still surveying the region, including the Ayacucho area where the quake was centered. The seismological service initially reported the magnitude as 7, but revised it downward to 6.9 in a subsequent report. According to the survey’s updated figures, the quake occurred at 2321GMT Sunday and was centered about 43 kilometers (27 miles) east-northeast of an area called Tambo, and about 467 kilometers (290 miles) southeast of the capital of Lima. It had a depth of 101 kilometers (62.8 miles), the survey said. Local media said that the quake was felt in parts of Lima and in many major cities of southeastern Peru, including Cuzco and Arequipa. –ABC News

    Things are about to change, wake up and prepare. In all areas, chaos is becoming the norm instead of the abnormal.
    In not only in Earth Change events, but in economic, society, religious and cultures.

    I would recommend, not to bug out voluntarily, only if I had no other choice…….
    It is going to get dangerous traveling……….take measures……..
