Santiago: A magnitude-6.2 earthquake has struck Chile's northern region but authorities say there are no reports of injuries or damage.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the epicenter of Friday's quake was 43 miles (69 kilometers) north-northwest of Taltal. It hit at 6 p.m. local time.

Chile's emergency services office says no injuries or damage to infrastructure have been reported, and the Chilean navy discounted the possibility of a tsunami affecting the country's long coast.

Chile is one of the world's most earthquake-prone countries. In 2010, a devastating 8.8-magnitude quake, one of the strongest ever recorded, and the tsunami it unleashed, killed more than 500 people.
