This April 11, 2010 photo shows peaople take part in a marathon honouring victims of the Feb. 27 quake in Santiago. A magnitude-6.4 earthquake has struck off Chile’s central coast on Monday. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude-6.4 earthquake has struck off Chile’s central coast. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The USGS says the quake’s epicentre was 151 km south-southwest of Concepcion, Chile, at a depth of 20 km.

Radio stations in the Bio-Bio region reported no major damages or injuries from Monday’s tremor.

The area has been shaken by hundreds of smaller quakes since a huge magnitude-8.8 quake hit on February 27, triggering a tsunami and killing 486 people. On Sunday, a 5.9-magnitude quake struck the area, one of more than a dozen perceptible temblors since Saturday.

Tens of thousands of Chileans are still living in tents or temporary huts.
