US geologists say an earthquake measuring 6.7 on the moment magnitude scale has struck Chile's Pacific coast, the latest in a string of tremors to rattle the region in recent weeks.
The epicenter of the quake, which struck at 5:09am (local time), was some 130 kilometres north-northeast of Antofagasta.
Facts: This earthquake was the largest ever instrumentally recorded. It measured a 9.5 on the Moment Magnitude (Mw) scale, but registered only an 8.5 on the Ms scale.source
