6.0 magnitude quake hits off Chilean coast

WASHINGTON - A 6.0 magnitude earthquake struck off the Chilean coast yesterday, about 88 kilometres south-southwest of the port city of Valparaiso, US seismologists said. The earthquake's epicentre was at a depth of 23km, and hit at around 8.26pm (Singapore time), according to the US Geological Survey (USGS). No immediate damage or casualties were reported, and the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre had not yet released its estimate of the event. The South American country has been on edge since a devastating 8.8-magnitude quake last year unleashed a tsunami and killed more than 500 people. The quake was strong enough to be felt in the capital Santiago, according to preliminary reports from city residents. CNA
