A 5.6-magnitude undersea earthquake struck the Pacific Ocean off of Peru's southern coast on Friday، triggering landslides on local roads that killed one person and wounded two، a regional governor said، Reuters reported.

Arequipa Governor Yamila Osorio added on Twitter that authorities were working to clear roads affected by landslides from surrounding hills.

The 41-kilometer deep (25.5 miles) quake struck the Pacific some 89 km (55.3 miles) from the coastal city of Canama late on Friday، according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
