Earthquake Report comment :
Very powerful aftershock in the Bio Bio area in Chile. Luckily the epicenter was located in the Pacific Ocean.
The aftershock was this time very shallow at a depth of only 10 km (normally the fatershocks are at a depth of 35 km).
No news of damage or injuries have been reported by the Chile newspapers. The maximum shaking following Oficina Nacional de Emergencia del ministerio del Interior (Onemi) was IV in Conception and a few neighboring villages = light shaking.
QuakeSOS, our earthquake iPhone application has not received incoming alarms. The Mercalli values published by USGS where not experienced on site.
Another earthquake of 4.9 magnitude, creted several alarms.
