Earthquake Hits Coastal Chile


A strong earthquake rattled coastal Chile early Wednesday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

The magnitude 6.5 quake struck at 4:32 a.m. and was centered about 345 miles south-southwest of the capital, Santiago, near Lebu, according to the USGS. The epicenter was more than 17 miles underground.

There were no immediate reports of damage.

In February, an 8.8-magnitude quake hit Chile near that nation's second largest city, Concepcion, killing hundreds.
