(CNN) -- An 8.2-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of northern Chile on Tuesday, generating a tsunami, authorities said.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported the quake, which hit at at 6:46 p.m. local time, was centered some 60 miles northwest of Iquique at a depth of 12.5 miles.
It had previously put the magnitude at 8.0 and the depth at 6.2 miles.
Chile's National Emergency Office tweeted Tuesday night that it was asking everyone to evacuate the South American nation's coast.
CNN Chile broadcast video of people in Antofagasta, a port city, walking through the streets as traffic piled up in some places. They appeared to be calm.
A tsunami warning was in effect for Chile, Peru and Ecuador.
