Magnitude 6.9 quake in Chile

Posted by Junichi Kawagoe on 12.2010 News Out of English Newspaper   0 comments   0 trackback
An aftershock with a magnitude of 6.9 occurred in Chile on Thursday morning but there have been no reports of casualties.

The US Geology Survey in Colorado says the tremor occurred at around 11:40 AM local time. The epicenter was 145 kilometers southwest of Santiago, the capital. The institute first put the magnitude at 7.2 but later revised to 6.9. It says the focus was 35 kilometers deep.

Chilean authorities had warned against a tsunami in coastal areas but none has been observed. They lifted the warning, with the exception of Easter Island, nearly 5 hours later.

Nobody has been reported dead or injured. There have been no reports of property damage.

An official at Japan's embassy in Santiago says strong horizontal shaking was observed but it was not strong enough to knock objects from shelves.

An earthquake with a magnitude of 8.8 struck Chile on February 27th, leaving more than 800 people dead, some of them from a tsunami triggered by the quake.
