A 6.2-magnitude earthquake rocked the Chilean coast, the US Geological Survey has reported. It struck at a depth of 20 kilometers (12 miles). The jolt occurred late Saturday 157.4 km (97.8 miles) to the southeast of Talca, a city of around 200,000 people south of the capital, Santiago. There has been no tsunami alert issued as a result of the quake. Around 10 million people might have felt the quake, according to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre.
