Earthquakes reported felt:

#1: 7.0 quake: 55 km al N de Huasco (Chile), 1 Sep 2020 04h0986 reports

A very large and potentially dangerous magnitude 7 quake hit off Chile’s Pacific coast approx. 55 km north of the Huasco town (pop. 9000) in the Atacama Region earlier this morning, at 00:09 local time.
According to the Chilean Seismological Institute, the magnitude of the quake was 7.0 although USGS and other agencies now report a magnitude of only 6.8 (which is 2 times weaker than a 7.0). The hypocenter depth of the quake was around 30 km.
Fortunately, no tsunami was generated by the quake.
Also, since no major populated centers are in the area close to the epicenter where strong ground shaking occurred, no major damage should have occurred, and so far, only minor damages have actually been reported.
The earthquake was felt in vast parts of central-northern Chile and nearby parts of western Argentina, in distances exceeding 500 km.
So far, at least 14 aftershocks have occurred, many of them felt by the population. They include 5 quakes of magnitudes between 5 and 6.1. Many more can be expected in the coming days to weeks.
