Aftershocks Rock Chile's Traumatized Quake Zone
SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - Another strong earthquake has shaken central Chile, part of a wave of aftershocks that have been rocking the same area that suffered so much destruction almost a year ago from a disastrous magnitude-8.8 quake.
Chile's office of emergency services says it has no information about victims or damage from the magnitude-6.6 quake that struck just after midnight Sunday. A magnitude-6.8 quake Friday sent thousands running for higher ground.
Chile has updated the toll from the Feb. 27, 2010 disaster to 524 deaths and 31 disappeared. That massive quake left 220,000 homeless and caused $30 billion in damage.
