Ad Feedback

Chilean official said no deaths or serious damage occurred from a powerful earthquake that struck central Chile on Sunday night.

The 7.1-magnitude earthquake shook buildings for about a minute, causing some residents to run outside.

It was the strongest and longest temblor to hit the region in two years. Sunday's earthquake hit about 16 miles north of the city of Talca. It sent people running for cover and knocked out power in the area.

Tsunami fears made some coastal residents seek higher ground, but no wave ever formed.

According to one government officials, the quake caused some minor injuries, but "nothing serious."
