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.
