It is reported that, the continents on the other side such as Buenos Aires, Argentina, also felt the strong tremor.
Report has it; this isn't the first earth quake to have hit Chile. In 2010, hundreds of people died when a powerful earthquake hit the nation and also leveling some part of the city in South-central Chile.
The people around the coastal belt and lowland areas have been asked by officials to move to the upland regions and the national airport is under lock for precautionary reasons. Some major activities such as schooling will be put on hold for now. As many fear as Water flows into the streets, especially the beautiful town of Concon surrounded by beaches. Although, no destructive wave, water rid up in some other cities.
After the first shake, there were numerous aftershock of magnitude 6 and above around the region. Hopefully, this shake won't be as destructive as the 2010 earth quake that hit the nation.
May the souls lost find rest. (Amen)!
