Earthquake shakes Chile
A magnitude-6.0 earthquake has struck Chile, with no immediate reports of damage or injury. An 8.8-magnitude quake in 2010 killed more than 500 people and grounded this fishing boat. Repairs from that quake have cost nearly $30 billion and left many homeless.

Earthquake shakes Chile

A 6.0-magnitude earthquake struck Chile on Sunday evening, the U.S. Geological Survey said. It was centered 23 miles south of Concepcion, in southern Chile.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The quake, which struck at a depth of 10 miles, occurred on the one-year anniversary of an 8.8-magnitude temblor that killed 521 people and left thousands homeless in the South American nation.

    That picture is very misleading. Why would you show a picture of damage from an earthquake a year ago directly under a headline that reads "Earthquake shakes Chile"? When there's an 3.0 earthquake in the bay area, are you going to have a picture of the collapsed Nimitz bridge to make us think it was a major quake?
