The earth is a shakin'

A few hours ago, there was a 7.5 magnitude earthquake in northern Peru, felt as far north as Bogota, Colombia. So far, only 4 people have died, about 20 houses collapsed. I think it was in a pretty remote jungle region.

Below is an earthquake map of the world from the USGS

That's quite a few earthquakes, and some of them have been fairly large. Pretty crazy events the earth has had lately!
