Earthquake Strikes Chile’s Wine Region

CHILE (Coquimbo) – The earthquake with a magnitude of 8.3 and its epicenter about 30 miles west of the city of Coquimbo off the shore forced over one million people to leave their houses – at least eight persons are said to be killed. Another 14 aftershocks along the Chilean coasts were even noticeable on Argentina’s Atlantic coast. The region around Coquimbo was declared a disaster area by the government, even though a tsunami with waves of over 4.5 meters flooded the coast and the hinterland. Michelle Bachelet, the Chilean president, asked the army for help and sent it to the region affected. First, fears were growing that the wine cellars in this region had been damaged, too, but recent reports weakened them again.
