A 6.7-magnitude earthquake that hit north-central Chile late Saturday has killed at least two people and left thousands temporarily without power. Residents in Coquimbo region, a coastal region about 500 kilometers from Santiago, were ordered to evacuate to high ground even though authorities quickly ruled out a tsunami. Chile’s national emergency service said an elderly man and an elderly woman from Coquimbo suffered heart attacks due to the quake.
