6.0 quake hits Chile coast; No injuries reported

A magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck late Friday off the Coast of Chile, the U.S. Geological service says.

The quake hit around 8:30 local time, 56 miles south-southwest of Valparaiso, the country's third-largest metropolitan area. No damage or injuries have been reported and no tsunami warning was issued.

The quake was felt in the capital Santiago, Reuters reports.

A magnitude-8.8 earthquake ravaged a southern section of Chile's Pacific coast in February, 2010, killing more than 800 people, causing widespread destruction, and leaving thousands homeless.
