SANTIAGO, June 20 (Reuters) – A shallow earthquake measuring
6.4 magnitude struck off Chile on Friday. There were no
immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The quake was 10 km (6 miles) deep and centred 90 km
northwest of Concepcion, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

Chile’s Navy said the quake did not meet the conditions to
create a tsunami off the country’s coastline.

There are no reports of damage to people, or basic services
or infrastructure due to the quake, Chile’s Onemi emergency
office said.
