Strong earthquake strikes Peru

LIMA, Peru - A powerful 7.5-magnitude earthquake shook the central coast of Peru Wednesday evening, causing alarm in the capital and damaging some buildings, according to an Associated Press photographer and the U.S. Geological Survey.
The earthquake struck about 90 miles southeast of the capital of Lima, according to the Web site of the USGS.
An Associated Press photographer reported some homes had collapsed in the center of the city and that many people had fled into the streets for safety. Another AP reporter said the quake shook the city for more than a minute.
Callers to Radio Programas, Peru's main news station, said parts of several cities in southern Peru had been hit with blackouts.
