ONLINE ONLY: No US tsunami threat from Chile aftershock


HONOLULU (AP) — Officials said there was no threat of tsunami to U.S. coastal states in the Pacific from a magnitude 7.8 aftershock that struck off Chile on Wednesday.

The Pacific and national tsunami warning centers said Wednesday there was no threat to Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington.

The aftershock rocked Chile’s northern coast, which was hit by a magnitude 8.2 earthquake Tuesday.

The temblor caused buildings to shake in the port of Iquique, which saw some damage from the big quake Tuesday.
