At least five moderate aftershocks hit a northern port city in Chile on Monday after a massive earthquake rocked the area, killing two people and injuring 18.
No new victims or damage were reported from the aftershocks to Sunday’s earthquake, which had a preliminary magnitude of 7.8, according to the Seismological Institute of the University of Chile.
This city’s port sustained about $30 million damage and was operating at 20 percent of capacity on Monday, said Public Works Minister Ricardo Lagos. Power, gas and water supplies were being gradually restored.
