A 5.6 is certainly not a major event, the next 72 hours will show if it was a precursor to a larger event.

Chilean Earthquake Leaves Eight People Dead, Government Says

June 14 (Bloomberg) -- Eight people died and many were left without power and telephone lines when a magnitude 7.9 earthquake rocked northern Chile, the government said.

The quake struck at 6:44 p.m. local time last night in the mountains 115 kilometers (71.5 miles) east northeast of the city of Iquique in north Chile, the U.S. Geological Survey said on its Web site. The epicenter of the earthquake, which struck 1,515 kilometers north of Santiago, was 111 kilometers below ground.

Eight people died because of the quake, Carmen Fernandez, an official in the National Emergency Office, said in an interview on Chilevision. She said there are no people missing and she didn't expect the number of dead to increase.

Aftershocks from the quake may last for a month, Chilevision said. Chile, the world's largest copper producer, is one of the world's most seismically active nations. In 1960, 5,000 people died in the country when it was hit by a 9.5 earthquake, the largest recorded in the world, according to the USGS Web site.

BHP Billiton Plc, the world's largest mining company, said the quake knocked out power at its Cerro Colorado copper mine. Operations are running normally at its Escondida mine, the world's largest copper mine, Alejandra Wood, a spokesman for Melbourne- based BHP Billiton in Santiago, said.

Chuquicamata, Codelco's largest mine, temporarily halted mining, Chilevision said. The mine is running normally, said Sandra Guijarro, a spokeswoman for Codelco by telephone in Santiago. She didn't confirm the suspension. Government-owned Codelco is the world's biggest copper producer.

Quakes of magnitude 5 and more can cause considerable damage, depending on their depth. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a bulletin saying no alert was in effect after the quake.

Well Jijaji prabhu, there was just a 5.3 in Yucaipa, CA, so maybe you're quake watch is justified. wink.gif I got to experience this one in a 10 story building about 10 miles from the epicenter. Very exciting.
