Strong Earthquakes Rock Chile as Pinera Takes Office
Two strong earthquakes shook Chile Thursday as Sebastian Pinera prepared to take office as the country's new president.
The U.S. Geological Survey measured a 7.2 magnitude quake in Chile's Libertador O'Higgins region, about 124 kilometers from the capital Santiago. It followed a magnitude 5.1 quake centered in the Arucania, Chile region, about 555 kilometers south of the capital.
There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries from the new quakes. A major 8.8-magnitude earthquake in February killed hundreds of people.
The new quakes came as dignitaries gathered in the capital to witness Mr. Pinera succeed Chile's first female president, socialist Michelle Bachelet, who is barred from a second consecutive term.
