The US Geological Survey (USGS) preliminarily reported a 6.4-magnitude earthquake 47 kilometres northeast of Coquimbo.
A local resident has shared a video purportedly depicting the objects in his home trembling the moment the quake began.
According to the Richter scale, 6.0-magnitude earthquakes are considered "strong", and can cause moderate to severe damage to poorly built structures.
