CHILE : 27 March UPDATE: Big 7.1 Quake Hits Near Talca; Little Damage Reported; 14 Injured.
It's seems to be BIG quake season...in Latin America.
Last week there was a 7.4 whopper in Mexico's Guerrero state...and now Chile.
Central Chile was scared into the streets...by a 7.1 evening shocker...19 miles deep...near Talca...but felt over 100 miles away in Santiago.
It was the biggest..and longest quake...since 2010's disastrous 8.8...in the same region...that killed 500...cost $8 billion in insurance claims...and billions more in economic losses.
At least 14 were reported injured...and 25,000 people were evacuated.
One woman, 74, died of an apparent heart attack.
