Moderate yet deep magnitude 5.7 earthquake 49 km northeast of Santiago, Chile
5.7 quake 23 Jan 9:07 pm (GMT -3)
5.7 quake 23 Jan 9:07 pm (GMT -3)
An earthquake of magnitude 5.7 occurred in the evening on Saturday 23 January 2021 at 9:07 pm local time near Santiago, Provincia de Santiago, Santiago Metropolitan, Chile, as reported by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at an intermediate depth of 110 km. The strength of the earthquake may have been tempered by its relative great depth below the surface, which makes it feel weaker in absolute terms. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
A second report was later issued by INPRES, which listed it as a magnitude 5.6 earthquake.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Chicureo Abajo (pop. 18,000) located 48 km from the epicenter, Santiago (pop. 4,837,300) 49 km away, Puente Alto (pop. 510,400) 50 km away, La Pintana (pop. 201,200) 53 km away, Lo Prado (pop. 104,300) 55 km away, San Bernardo (pop. 249,900) 58 km away, Lampa (pop. 29,300) 69 km away, Buin (pop. 55,400) 70 km away, Los Andes (pop. 56,900) 72 km away, and Peñaflor (pop. 65,500) 74 km away.

Santiago, Providencia / Moderate shaking (MMI V) / 10-15 s : No fue un temblor normal, el movimiento no fue de vaivén, más bien vertical, como una fractura importante en la zona de Farellones. Fueron dos movimientos consecutivos. | 8 users found this interesting.  
  • Creo que esto se debe en gran medida a las mineras ubicadas en la zona. AngloAmerican, está construyendo un túnel bajo tierra para uno de sus mayores proyectos de extracción de cobre. No les basta con una mina a tajo abierto? Qué avaricia, falta de conexión y despreocupación con el entorno y sus habitantes. Hago un llamado intenso para que los que trabajan e investigan en esta área se hagan cargo de informar a la ciudadanía!!!! y autoridades???? POR FAVOR!!!!
