Note: - The site I get my info for my update posts is based on a UTC (Cordinated Universal Time) day. Midnight in UTC time is 8:00 PM Eastern Time.
My post at the last spot on the previous page of this thread shows only four quakes for Chile for the entire UTC day. they are - 6.0 - 5.0 - 5.0 - 4.8
The 6.7 just reported by Zerozx is just into the new UTC day by a little under 2 - 1/2 hours.
If anybody was confused by the timing of the days in my updates I hope this clears it up.
Sure thats an aftershock?
Updated- Strong 6.7-magnitude aftershock causes power outages in quake-hit Chile - http://wireupdate.com/wires/2331/str...ake-hit-chile/
okay...now goodnight.SANTIAGO (BNO NEWS) -- A very strong aftershock struck central Chile on Monday night, seismologists said, causing power outages but no aparent major damage according to Chilean officials.
The 6.7-magnitude earthquake happened at 11.22 p.m. local time and was centered about 75 kilometers (50 miles) northwest of Concepcion, according to the U.S Geological Survey. It struck about 35 kilometers (21.7 miles) deep.
Talcahuano and other cities near the epicenter were without electricity following the aftershock. There was no tsunami risk, Chilean officials told CNN Chile.
Chile was hit by a powerful 8.8 magnitude earthquake on February 27.
Yeah thats kinda strong...........
Another moderate to strong aftershock, guys and gals. Around a 6-magnitude according to early readings. Happened at 12:04am local time. Not much detail, just a quick post! This was from my iPod...apparently I'm addicted.
last post for tonight, I promise!
The birth pangs are getting stronger!
Yeah, big time.

4But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.
Curious...why are they calling them aftershocks if they are, indeed, earthquakes? Are they just confused?
It's been over 2 weeks since the initial 8.8 there. I live in the midwest, so I'm not really educated on earthquakes, only been in 1 and 1 aftershock, but it seems to me it's a little late to be calling it an aftershock isn't it?
Wow, this is just amazing. My husband told me about this yesterday!!!
The magnitude 8.8 quake that struck near Maule, Chile, Feb. 27 moved the entire city of Concepcion 10 feet to the west.
Precise GPS measurements from before and after the earthquake, the fifth largest ever recorded by seismographs, show that the country’s capital, Santiago, moved 11 inches west. Even Buenos Aires, nearly 800 miles from the epicenter, shifted an inch. The image above uses red arrows to represent the relative direction and magnitude of the ground movement in the vicinity of the quake.
The analysis comes from a project led by Ohio State earth scientist Mike Bevis that has been using GPS to record movements of the crust on Chile since 1993. The area is of particular interest to geoscientists because it is an active subduction zone, where an oceanic plate is colliding with a continental plate and being pushed into the Earth’s molten mantle below.
The world’s largest recorded earthquakes since 1900 have all occurred in subduction zones, including the largest quake ever recorded, which was a magnitude 9.5 in 1960 in Chile not too far from February’s earthquake. The second largest was a 9.2 in Alaska in 1964, and the third was the magnitude 9.1 Sumatra quake of 2004 that created the tsunami that killed more than 200,000 people. The fourth largest quake was a magnitude 9 on Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula.
