6.6 Quake Rocks Chile

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — A 6.6-magnitude earthquake rocked the region around Valparaiso, Chile on Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or serious damage from the strong quake that occurred at 22:32 GMT (7:23 p.m. EDT), but electricity and telephone service was interrupted in some areas.

The seismological service said a preliminary report showed the quake was centered about 18 kilometers (11 miles) west-northwest of a community called Hacienda La Calera, around 118 kilometers (73 miles) from the capital of Santiago. It had a depth of about 32 kilometers (19 miles.)
