The Chilean city of Concepción suffered an earthquake of 6.3 degrees on Wednesday afternoon, reported the Seismological National Center (CSN) of Chile.
The telluric movement was felt at 15:27 local time and its epicenter was set near the city of Cobquecura, in Concepcion, about 500 km south of Santiago.
A report from the National Emergency Office (Onemi) stated that “damage to persons, alteration to utility services or infrastructure product of this earthquake,” were not reported.
It also noted that the characteristics of the earthquake “do not fulfill the necessary conditions to generate a tsunami.”
Images of the National Television of Chile showed some evacuees from high places in Concepcion, while some problems with telephone services were reported.
Concepción suffered five years ago another earthquake and a subsequent tsunami that left more than 500 victims.
