Chile Quake Update – 21 September 2015

Posted by feww on September 21, 2015

M8.3 quake leaves 9,000+ Chileans homeless

More than 9,000 people were left homeless after a large earthquake and several powerful aftershocks hit offshore central Chile last week, officials said.

Previously, the official had put the number of people left homeless after the quake at around 3,500. The substantial increase came after officials assessed the damage near the epicenter in the Coquimbo region, about than 260 kilometers north of the capital, Santiago.

The 8.3 magnitude quake struck on September 16, killing at least 13 people, with four others still missing, said a senior official.

The total cost of damage and the number of injuries from the quake have not yet been released.

Latest Significant Aftershocks

Centered at 31.585°S, 71.712°W the strong aftershock, measuring 6.3Mw, occurred at a depth of about 22.8km, reported USGS/EHP.

The aftershock was timed at 05:39:33UTC on 2015-09-21.

Chile Earthquake – Aftershocks Update 2

Posted by feww on September 17, 2015

Significant aftershocks continue to strike Chile Coast

Dozens of aftershocks measuring ≥ 5.0Mw have struck the Chilean coast following the 8.3Mw mainshock that struck at 22:54:33UTC on Wednesday.

The quakes have killed at least a dozen people, and forced more than a million people out of their homes. However, there were no reliable reports of the number of injuries or extent of property damage, as of posting.

The ensuing tsunami that followed the mainshock caused extensive flooding in multiple coastal towns including the port city of Coquimbo, which was hit by waves of up to 4.5 meters and sustained significant damage, officials told reporters.

The largest aftershocks, according to USGS/EHP, include:

M6.7, 53km W of Illapel, Chile 2015-09-17 04:10:30 UTC 30.1 km
M6.5, 54km S of Ovalle, Chile 2015-09-17 03:55:06 UTC 35.0 km
