There are victims in Peru there was an earthquake of magnitude 7.1

The U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center initially warned that “hazardous tsunami waves are forecast for some coasts” and that larger-than-normal waves could hit Peru and Chile. But the center then said in a later statement that “there is no longer a tsunami threat from this earthquake” and that the center hadn’t observed any tsunami waves.

"Dry weather is expected along and near the south-central coast of Peru through Monday," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Eric Leister said. "Temperatures will rise between 24-27 C (75-80 F) during the day and fall to 18-21 C (65-70 F) at night."

The earthquake was rather shallow with a depth of 8 miles (12.1 km) and was centered 26 miles (42 km) to the south-southwest of Acari, Peru, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).
