This from the BBC

No loss of life or injurys reported yet.

A 7.2-magnitude earthquake has hit off the central coast of Chile, the US Geological Survey says.

The epicentre was 95km (60 miles) northwest of Temuco with a depth of 12km, the USGS said.

It added that there was no current widespread tsunami threat, although there are reports of people fleeing the area.

An 8.8-magnitude earthquake in the same area last February caused widespread destruction and left dozens dead.

There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage from the quake, which hit at 1720 (2020 GMT).

It was centred about 600 kilometres (370 miles) southwest of the capital, Santiago.

That 8.8 earthquake was 21 miles underground last year. This 7.2 was only 8 miles underground which will cause some widespread and extensive damage, close to the scale of what was seen in the 8.8 earthquake.
