This is a nasty one, felt by many, hope it's not as bad as it looks

relatively yes



About 100,000 people in Santiago lost electricity, and there were also partial cuts to the power supply in the cities of Temuco and Valparaiso, said Chilean emergency service Onemi. Copper producer Codelco said its Andina mine in the area was operating normally. Most of Chile's copper mines are in the north of the country, which was not affected by the quake. The relatively shallow quake was felt as far away as southern Chile and western Argentina.


quakes can go down to 300 kilometers

I hope that no one was injured. Keep us informed of further developments, please?

Chile's been seeing quakes in the 4 mag range very recently. Hope nothing worse comes their way. Thanks for the info.

So far no reports of major damage, and ya it seems they've been getting their share of larger quakes, not sure if it's the norm, still though when one hits inland it's worth worrying about

I'm guessing this is a pre-quake because I read that the plate hadn't completed it's movement a while back.

Doesn't Chile quakes lead to other quakes?

Don't know about that but the same area had a 6.3 the day before.

So it seems it just may.
