Magnitude-6.8 earthquake strikes Chile, no damage reported

earthquake

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — A strong magnitude-6.8 earthquake struck north-central Chile on Saturday, causing buildings to sway in the capital of Santiago, but there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake struck at 4:31 a.m. about 29 miles (47 kilometers) southwest of Ovalle, a city 185 miles (300 kilometers) northwest of Santiago, at a depth of 22 miles (36 kilometers).

Chile’s Navy first alerted, but later discounted, the possibility of a small tsunami.

“The situation in the region of the epicenter is now in a state of normality,” Ricardo Toro, the head of Chile’s emergency services, said in a press conference.

4.1-magnitude Arizona earthquake shakes metro Phoenix

Residents reported shaking across metro Phoenix on Sunday night amid at least three quakes that struck near Black Canyon City.

A string of earthquakes north of Phoenix gave the Valley a rare jolt Sunday night, and the largest – a magnitude 4.1 just before 11:30 p.m. – rattled homes across the region.

The series of at least three Arizona earthquakes generated no reports of notable damage, but left people swaying or stunned from Black Canyon City, closest to the epicenter, to Camp Verde and across metro Phoenix as far as Queen Creek.

Michael Conway of the Arizona Geological Survey said Monday morning that scientists had not identified the causative fault line yet. Because the earthquake was small and did not rupture the ground, it will be hard to identify where it originated, Conway said.He also said there will be aftershocks over the next few days, many of them too small to feel.
