Peru is located in the region Pacific Ring of Fire, 85% of the world’s seismic activity is recorded. In 2007, Pisco (Ica) experienced one of the most severe earthquakes in recent years, surpassed only by the 2001 Arequipa earthquake.

The earthquake had a magnitude of 8.0 on the Richter scale and a maximum intensity of IX on the Mercalli scale and lasted for 3 minutes and 30 seconds.
