    I realize this article says 8.0, but just heard on FOX that it's been up graded to 8.2. I'll try and find the link

    MAGNITUDE-8.0 QUAKE STRIKES NORTHERN CHILE

    SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) -- A powerful magnitude-8.0 earthquake struck in off Chile's northern coast Tuesday night, and authorities ordered an evacuation of coastal areas in case of a tsunami. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

    The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake struck 61 miles (99 kilometers) northwest of the city of Iquique at 8:46 p.m., shaking a region that has been rocked by numerous quakes over the past two weeks.

    Chile's National Emergency Office tweeted Tuesday night that it was asking everyone to evacuate the South American nation's coast.

    CNN Chile broadcast video of people in Antofagasta, a port city, walking through the streets as traffic piled up in some places. They appeared to be calm.


    A tsunami warning was in effect for Chile, Peru and Ecuador.

    A tsunami watch was issued for Colombia, Panama and Costa Rica, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

    CHILEANS WORRY OVER STRING OF 300 QUAKES IN NORTH


    The unnerving activity began with a strong magnitude-6.7 quake on March 16 that caused more than 100,000 people to briefly evacuate low-lying areas, although no tsunami materialized and there was little physical damage from the shaking.

    But the land has not settled down. More than a dozen perceptible quakes were felt in the city of Iquique just on Monday.

    Expert: Chile's M8.2 quake not 'the big one'

    SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - Authorities lifted tsunami warnings for Chile's long coastline early Wednesday after a magnitude-8.2 earthquake struck the South American nation north. Six people were crushed to death or suffered fatal heart attacks, a remarkably low toll for such a powerful shift in the Earth's crust.
