Sabansaya volcano is responsible for earthquakes
First Sabansaya volcanoLocated in Arequipa, it began its period of unstable seismic and volcanic activity in 2016. According to ASISMET, the last three earthquakes, in such a short period of time, were caused by a single activity. Geographical fault Located near a volcano.
Institute of Geology, Mining and Metallurgy (ingemmet) Through its social networks, Sabancaya has not reported any unusual activity at the volcano. However, it did not rule out issuing a precautionary warning to the people of Keiloma to be alert and aware of such occurrences.
As recalled, in March of the same year, the The White City It experienced 21 tremors in two days, which, like last night’s, damaged houses and caused rocks to fall on roads. At the time, this event caused fear among the people due to the hidden danger of the activity of the Sabansaya volcano.
According to Ingemmet, the seismic activity of March 2022 was caused by the regular eruptive activity of the volcano, which led to the reactivation of geological faults in the area. However, since this event has occurred before, there is no reason to change the volcano alert at this time. Therefore, after the earthquakes were recorded, it was clarified that the volcano was not going to erupt. Kyloma.
Mayor of the province Kyloma No human casualties have been reported in the emergency areas.
“It caused great panic among the people, our first response force is assessing the damage, heavy machinery was also used to prevent landslides in the Guiparani sector, in any case, we continue to assess with all the agencies,” said the Burgomaster.
Friday 02 night and this Saturday 03 June morning, residents Arequipa They are cautious. Last night, in one hour, three earthquakes of moderate intensity occurred in the Golga Valley. According to a report by the Geophysical Institute of Peru (IGP), there have been two tremors in the last few hours, which are already total Cinco Los Earthquakes With magnitudes oscillating between 3.6 and 4.7, centered in the province Kyloma.
At 02:17 this Saturday, the most recent tremor with a magnitude of 4 occurred, and its epicenter was located in the mountainous area of Arequipa, in the province of Quiloma, 17 kilometers south of the district of Maca. This information was provided by the Center for National Emergency Operations (COEN), with data provided by the IGP.
The location of the earthquake was at a depth of 12 kilometers, which made the residents experience it very intensely on the surface.
An hour earlier, a previous tremor with a magnitude of 3.6 and the same earthquake was recorded in Makkah, however, in this case, the depth was 10 kilometers.

Multilateral National Simulacrum 2023
Last Wednesday, May 31, 2023, the MULTIPLECRO NATIONAL SIMULAGRAM So that citizens know how to act best before an earthquake. Another objective of the event was to improve the response capacity of the National Disaster Risk Management Agency (SINAGERD).
Through the process, an effective and timely response was sought Dangers Nature and caused by human activities. Inclusivity, gender and interculturality were considered.
The exercise was scheduled on this date to commemorate the May 31, 1970 earthquake, which caused many casualties along the Department’s beaches. cash.

Peru is the country most affected by A Earthquake Because its territory is located at the confluence of the Nazca and South American tectonic plates. This causes intense seismic activity.
Collision of plates may occur Movements and ruptures in the Earth’s crust, which in turn are released in the form of earthquakes.
Another factor that explains the high frequency of vibrations Peru The coast integrates the Pacific Ring of Fire.
