    BREAKING: Major Earthquake Strikes Off Chile Coast, USGS Says
    A massive earthquake struck off the coast of Chile late Tuesday near the port city of Iquique, according to the U.S. Geological Survey -- prompting a tsunami warning for a long arm of Latin America's Pacific coast.


    The magnitude 8.0 earthquake was centered 53 miles northwest of Iquique and struck at a shallow depth of 6.2 miles, the USGS said on its website.


    The quake prompted a tsunami warning for Chile, Peru and Ecuador and a tsunami watch for Colombia, Panama and Costa Rica, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.


    The earthquake came on the heels of a March 16 quake with a magnitude-6.7 tremor off of Iquique, which is home to 180,000 people
