Peru Earthquake M6.9

Just off the wire, and this is all I know about it.  Right on the subduction zone, an M6.9 is fairly small for such a quake, could even be a foreshock for something bigger.  Shouldn't be a tsunami, and they are given a depth of 34 km.  Can't pull more than 10 cm/s PGV, I'm sure.  Unless they have houses of sand, like Turkey, this should be a non-event.
