Strong aftershock (February 27) in Chile's O'Higgins province

Aftershock Chile November 28

Strong aftershock from the February 27 mega-earthquake.
Strongest aftershock in several weeks.  People in this zone started to live in peace again, without the terror of being awaken by the noise and shaking of the many aftershocks.
Some are so used to the aftershocks that they sleep through it.
This aftershock occurred during the early morning hours.
The earthquake was felt as a light shaking in the capital Santiago de Chile. People near the epicenter felt the aftershock as a max. V MMI (Modified Mercalli).
Most houses in Chile have been build earthquake-proof.
By experience we know that only earthquakes higher than M 6.0 will be potentially damaging in Chile.
