Strong quake strikes off coast of Chile


A 6.4 magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of central Chile.

The quake's epicenter was located 151 kilometers southwest of Concepcion at a depth of 20.6 kilometers, the US Geological Survey said.

The temblor hit at around seven in the evening local time.

The city of Concepcion was near the epicenter of the 8.8-magnitude earthquake of February 27 that triggered a local tsunami and killed at least 452 people.

There have been no immediate reports of damage or injuries, AFP reported on Monday.
