U.S. & World

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — A magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck early Tuesday off the coast of northern Chile, but there were no reports of damage.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was recorded at 3:46 a.m. local time at a moderate depth of 32 kilometers (20 miles). It was centered 37 kilometers (23 miles) west-southwest of the city of Arica.

The biggest recent quake to hit Chile came in 2010, when a magnitude 8.8 quake caused a tsunami blamed for more than 500 deaths.
