Moderate 5.2 Magnitude Quake Rocks Chile

The U.S. Geological Service says a 5.2-magnitude earthquake has rocked northern Chile.

Chilean officials say there are no immediate reports of injuries or damage in the quake that registered Tuesday at 4:33 a.m. local time (0733 GMT). It was centered near the community of Mamina, in Tarapaca region, about 1,050 miles (1,700 kilometers) north of the capital of Santiago.

A magnitude-7.1 earthquake struck central Chile on March 25, the strongest and longest that many people said they had felt since a huge quake devastated that region two years ago.

Some people were injured by falling ceiling material in last month’s temblor, but there were no reports of major damage or deaths due to quake-related accidents.
