Strong quakes shake Chile

Mon., March 17, 2014

GOLDEN, Colorado – A 6.2-magnitude earthquake has shaken Chile’s northern Pacific shore just hours after a stronger 6.7-magnitude quake hit the same region.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has no tsunami warning in effect.

The latest quake hit late Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. Its epicenter was 46 miles northwest of Iquique, Chile. The earlier quake caused more than 100,000 people to briefly evacuate some coastal areas as a precaution.
