200 Quake Victims Airlifted to Safe Areas in Peru

At least 200 victims from Sunday’s earthquake in Peru have been airlifted after roads leading to their communities were destroyed.

Emergency crews rescued people in Utcubamba province, in northern Peru, Monday, November 29, using military helicopters.

Peruvian President Pedro Castillo travelled to the affected zone to meet with victims and inspect damage to roads and infrastructure.

The 7.5 magnitude earthquake shook northern Peru on Sunday and was felt as far as Lima in the center of the country, destroying at least 75 homes and leaving one child dead.
