Strong quake hits northwest Argentina, near Chile

A magnitude 6.7 earthquake hit northwestern Argentina on Wednesday, near the border with Chile, striking at a fairly deep 190 kilometers (118 miles) below the earth, the US Geological Survey said. There were no preliminary reports of injuries to people, damage to infrastructure, or interruption of services, Chile’s Onemi emergency office said. “The quake was really deep, so it really didn’t feel that strong,” said Mauricio Soriano, the regional head of Onemi in the mining-intensive Antofagasta region.
