Earthquake in Chile leaves 10 missing
April 22, 2007
Chile - A 6.2 earthquake has left ten people missing and caused landslides and large waves in southern Chile Saturday, according to Chilean government's disaster agency.
The earthquake struck at 1:53 p.m. ET, in Aisen, Chile, a mountainous area of the country. It is about 30 miles northwest of Coihaique, Chile, and about 820 miles south of the nation's capital, Santiago.
The large waves were not caused directly by the earthquake, but rather from the large chunks of earth from the landslides as they dropped into ocean. No other damage was immediately reported.
