The network indicated that the quake had a superficial depth of less than 30 km and was felt especially in the city of Cali, capital of the Department of Valle.
According to El Pais newspaper from Cali, four houses were affected in the municipality of Dagua. The tabloid also said that the earthquake caused panic in the inhabitants of the high buildings in the city of Cali and was strongly felt in municipalities like Yumbo, Jamundí, Cartago and Pereira.
