Probable magnitude 6.3 quake strikes offshore Coquimbo, Chile

A 6.3-magnitude jolt has shaken Chile, which is still recovering from a deadly earthquake last week.

The new quake hit off the Chilean coast 230km north of the capital Santiago, about 50km west of the coastal city of Illapel in the Choapa Province, according to USGS.

A powerful 8.3 earthquake shook Chile on Wednesday, triggering a tsunami and the evacuation of over 1 million people.
