The U.S. Geological Survey reported that the epicentre of the earthquake was almost 41 miles west-northwest of Diego de Almagro, where almost 20,000 people reside. The epicentre was almost at a depth of 44.5 miles in the Atacama region.
The earthquake did not cause any catastrophe but it caused a landslide while rattling Chile’s coastal areas. No infrastructural damage was reported after the quake. None of the citizens or tourists was reported to be injured after the quake.
The quake caused dust storms in the Atacama Desert of Chile. Some of the buildings were evacuated after the earthquake. The authorities did not issue any tsunami alert yet.
In 2010, one 8.8-magnitude earthquake triggered a Tsunami, which wiped off a huge portion of Chile’s infrastructure. On 16th September’15, another 8.3-magnitude earthquake caused devastation in the country.
