Chile Earthquake Today 2014 Strikes San Antonio


LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A strong Chile earthquake today 2014 has struck San Antonio. The terremoto en Chile hoy, a strong 5.2 magnitude temblor, started in the morning. Damage assessment is pending.

USGS indicates to news that a 5.2 magnitude Chile earthquake today began just after 4:16 am local time. The quake was shallow. Reps tell news that the quake started only nine miles below ground level. As a result the quake could be felt across the area. Officials tell news that the quake was twenty-eight miles west of San Antonio. It was thirty miles west of Cartagena and roughly fifty miles west of Melpilla. The quake was also fifty-three miles southwest of Valparaiso.

Some Chile residents still remember the 1965 quake which at a 7.4 magnitude took the lives of four hundred residents. It came only five years after the horrific 9.5 magnitude quake which killed 1,655 residents. Listed as the largest earthquake ever, the 1960 Chile quake resulted in “1,655 killed, 3,000 injured, 2,000,000 homeless, and $550 million damage in southern Chile” reports USGS. A “tsunami caused 61 deaths, $75 million damage in Hawaii; 138 deaths and $50 million damage in Japan; 32 dead and missing in the Philippines; and $500,000 damage to the west coast of the United States.”

USGS tells news that “three segments are characterized by steeply dipping subduction; the other two by near-horizontal subduction. The Nazca plate beneath northern Ecuador, southern Peru to northern Chile, and southern Chile descend into the mantle at angles of 25° to 30°.” They add that “In contrast, the slab beneath southern Ecuador to central Peru, and under central Chile, is subducting at a shallow angle of approximately 10° or less. In these regions of flat-slab subduction, the Nazca plate moves horizontally for several hundred kilometers before continuing its descent into the mantle, and is shadowed by an extended zone of crustal seismicity in the overlying South America plate.”

It was sixty-five miles west of Corinto and the same distance from Puerto El Triuno. It was also sixty-five miles west of La Union and roughly 112 miles from San Salvador.

Several strong quakes have hit the country in recent years. In 2012 , a 4.8 magnitude quake erupted seventy miles south of Usulutan and seventy-three miles southwest of San Rafael Oriente. The quake was west of Nicaragua and southeast of Guatemala. The quake was also southwest of San Miguel and Gotera.

USGS tells news that “Since 1900, the largest earthquakes to occur in this region were the October 29, 1900 M7.7 Caracas earthquake, and the July 29, 1967 M6.5 earthquake near this same region. Further to the west, a broad zone of compressive deformation trends southwestward across western Venezuela and central Columbia.” They add that “The plate boundary is not well defined across northwestern South America, but deformation transitions from being dominated by Caribbean/South America convergence in the east to Nazca/South America convergence in the west. The transition zone between subduction on the eastern and western margins of the Caribbean plate is characterized by diffuse seismicity involving low- to intermediate-magnitude (M<6.0) earthquakes of shallow to intermediate depth.” For continuing coverage click HERE.

USGS tells news that “Large intermediate-depth earthquakes (those occurring between depths of approximately 70 and 300 km) are relatively limited in size and spatial extent in South America, and occur within the Nazca plate as a result of internal deformation within the subducting plate.” USGS adds “These earthquakes generally cluster beneath northern Chile and southwestern Bolivia, and to a lesser extent beneath northern Peru and southern Ecuador, with depths between 110 and 130 km. Most of these earthquakes occur adjacent to the bend in the coastline between Peru and Chile. The most recent large intermediate-depth earthquake in this region was the 2005 M7.8 Tarapaca, Chile earthquake”.
