Quake Map of Peru
More than 100 people were injured by a 6.3 magnitude temblor that struck Peru’s south-central coast early Monday.

Officials said 16 homes sustained damage around the city of Ica, which was badly damaged by a magnitude 8 quake in August 2007.

The U.S. Geological Survey said Monday's late-night quake struck at 11 minutes past midnight nine miles southeast of Ica.

The shaking briefly knocked out power to the region.
