6.2 Magnitude Quake Strikes Chile Again

SANTIAGO DE CHILE - A strong 6.2 magnitude earthquake shook north-central Chile Monday, according to the country's National Seismological Center.

No loss of life or property has been reported so far.

The earthquake occurred at 2:39 local time (5:39 GMT), and its epicenter was located 27 km (16.7 miles) northwest of the coastal city of Los Vilos (118 miles north of Santiago), 10 km below the earth's surface.

According to the Chilean Navy's Hydrographic and Oceanographic Service, or SHOA, the earthquake was unlikely to trigger a tsunami.

The quake, measuring six on the Mercalli Intensity Scale in the towns of Coquimbo, Zapallar, and La Serena, and five in Viņa del Mar and Valparaiso, is an aftershock of the 8.4-magnitude earthquake, which had struck the region on Sept. 16, causing a tsunami, and leaving 13 people dead and five missing.

According to radio reports, the quake was also felt in the Argentinian cities of Mendoza and San Juan.
