just found out about this, cant find a lot on it at the moment.



SANTIAGO, Chile - The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude-7 earthquake has hit southern Chile. There is no immediate word on any injuries or damage. The USGS says it struck Friday afternoon about 30 miles (45 kilometers) north of the city of Concepcion at a depth of 11 miles (18 kilometers). Shaking was felt in the capital, Santiago. The epicenter is near the site of a massive quake and resulting tsunami that killed at least 521 people and left 200,000 homeless a year ago

What was the size of the quake in that location last year - did I miss that? It was populated then I hope not now as a 7.0 quake would be very bad.

Will return if I have follow up or to find out if others do.
