At least three people have been reported dead after a powerful 8.3 magnitude earthquake jolted Chile’s northern coast, causing buildings to sway in the capital of Santiago and triggering floods from small tsunami waves in some shore towns.

According to Fox News, officials said that there were no reports of serious damage hours after the quake.

Authorities were quick to issue a tsunami warning in the entire Pacific coast of Chile.

Tremours were also felt on the other side of the continent, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Chile’s President Michelle Bachelet said, addressing that nation, that they “must confront a powerful blow from nature”.
