New Earthquake last night

I had been in bed for about 45 mins when a low rumble and moderately violent shaking brought me round from a semi sleep.  Although seemingly more violent than the last one in January, this time it only last about 4 seconds (might have been slightly longer, that is how it appeared to me though when I was fully awake).  No damage was done and although the magnitude was only 4.8 (far weaker at the epicentre than the last one) this time it was located only 24 miles from the centre of Lima and therefore felt a lot stronger)
