In chile, 7.2 magnitude earthquake hits off the coastline

A depthless quake of magnitude 7.2 struck off Chile’s shore on Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) announced.

A tsunami is not assumed, announced the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

The tremor was met 83 miles (134 km) west of Talca at a drop of 6.1 miles, the USGS stated.

Chile, positioned on the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” has a plentiful history of deadly temblors, including an 8.8-magnitude quake in 2010 off the south-central coast that triggered a tsunami that destroyed coastal cities.
