Massive Chile Earthquake Triggers Tsunami

A major 8.2-magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of Chile, the U.S. Geological Survey said late Tuesday, with the temblor reportedly triggering a tsunami. Reuters cited Chilean emergency officials as saying the quake triggers some landslides along roads, but no further reports of casualties or damage were immediately available. Reuters seaprately quoted Chilean Navy sources as saying a giant wave had struck the north of the country. The U.S.-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a warning for much of coastal Central and South America, adding that "an evaluation of the Pacific-wide tsunami threat is underway, and there is a possibility that Hawaii could be elevated to a watch or warning status." The quake struck at 8:46 p.m. local time (7:46 p.m. U.S. Eastern time), located a shallow depth of 6 miles below the seabed, with the epicenter 62 miles northwest of the Chilean port city of Iquique, the USGS said.Copyright © 2014 MarketWatch, Inc....
