Earthquake in Peru

Per @BreakingNewsOn, "A strong earthquake struck 110 miles from Lima, Peru." Preliminary reports put the magnitude of the quake at 5.7 and 5.8.

Here's some of the first tweets on the incident from Peru.

@froncal1 (Lima, Peru): Hubo un temblor y me quedé sentada!!! (There was an earthquake and I was sitting!!!)

@Camuss (Lima, Peru): te dije que era temblor... http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2009cpa1.php (I told you I was shaking...)

@Karikuy (Lima, Peru): just experienced a 5.5 earthquake that is said to have been off the coast of Peru, funny, I thought it was just a large truck passing by.
