Temuco Chile Earthquake

Temuco Chile Earthquake - A 7.1-magnitude earthquake hit Chile on Sunday, disrupting power lines and telecommunications service. The earthquake caused no injures but prompted tens of thousands of people to flee coastal areas out of fear of a subsequent tsunami, like the one that swept away entire villages last February.

The earthquake struck 45 miles northwest of Temuco at a depth of 10 miles, AFP reported. It struck Biobio, Maule and O'Higgins, a region affected by the 8.8-magnitude earthquake and tsunami that devastated Chile in February.
