SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - A magnitude-6.1 earthquake has hit the same part of Chile that suffered a catastrophic quake in February.
The new temblor has caused alarm but no reported damage or injuries.
It struck the regions of Maule, BioBio and Araucani - just where the earlier magnitude-8.8 quake caused the most damage.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the new quake struck at 3:28 a.m. (3:28 a.m. EDT; 0728 GMT) Thursday and it was centered about 22 miles (35 kilometers) south of the hard-hit regional capital of Concepcion.
