earth tremor

A magnitude-6.3 earthquake struck Chile on Monday near the border with Argentina, the US Geological Service (USGS) and Chilean authorities said.

The country’s seismological centre CSN and USGS registered the earthquake at 19:54 pm (2254 GMT Sunday) some 76 kilometres west of Argentina’s San Antonio de los Cobres and 85 kilometres south-east of the Chilean village of Socaire.

Chile’s coast lies on the Pacific Ring of Fire, which is characterized by a high rate of seismic activity.
