The  German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported that a 6.0-magnitude earthquake struck the South Pacific Ocean, 63 km west of Concepcion, Region del Biobio, Chile at a shallow depth of 10km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.

Towns or cities that might have felt the earthquake include Talcahuano (pop. 253,000) located 57 km from the epicenter, Coronel (pop. 92,900) located 62 km from the epicenter, Concepcion (pop. 215,400) 63 km away, Lota (pop. 49,800) 64 km away, Arauco (pop. 24,700) 65 km away, Chiguayante (pop. 82,500) 67 km away, Penco (pop. 46,100) 67 km away, and Tomé (pop. 46,700) 73 km away.
