A magnitude 6.1 earthquake has occurred in Los Lagos, Chile, the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) said. Reports say that the depth of the earthquake was 129 kilometres (80 miles).
There has been no information of victims or damage caused by the earthquake.
Chile is located within the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, with 90 percent of the world's earthquakes occurring in this area.
In February 2010, Chile was hit by a devastating 8.8-magnitude earthquake, triggering a tsunami that lead to the deaths of more than 500 people.
