Earthquake jolts Chile again

  • Published at 04:37 am April 3rd, 2014

Another earthquake has struck off northern Chile late on Wednesday.

The US Geological Survey said a strong earthquake of 7.8 magnitudes has struck off northern Chile, reports Reuters.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said there was no widespread tsunami threat, but that the latest tremor could generate a local tsunami.

Chile's emergency office said it ordered a preventative evacuation of the coastal area.

There were no immediate reports of injury or damage.

The quake, the largest of a series of aftershocks following a powerful and deadly 8.2 magnitude quake that hit a day earlier, was located 12 miles south of the port of Iquique at a relatively shallow depth of 12.4 miles the USGS said. It was earlier reported as a 7.4 magnitude quake.
