A strong magnitude 6.5 earthquake hit near the coast of central Chile on Wednesday, the U.S. Geological Survey said, but emergency officials said there were no initial reports of damage.
The quake's center was 61 miles (98 km) north-northwest of Temuco, Chile, at a depth of 17.6 miles (28 km), the USGS said.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no threat of a widespread tsunami but that earthquakes of such size could sometimes generate tsunamis along coasts within 100 km (60 miles) of the epicenter. (Additional reporting by Alonso Soto; Editing by Peter Cooney)
