IQUIQUE, Chile — Coastal residents of Chile’s far-north spent a second sleepless night outside their homes early today after a major aftershock rattled an area hit a day earlier by a magnitude-8.2 earthquake that caused some damage and six deaths. No new major damage or casualties were reported.

After the 7.6-magnitude aftershock struck just before midnight Wednesday, Chile’s Emergency Office and navy issued a tsunami alert and ordered a precautionary evacuation of low-lying areas for the country’s whole 2,500-mile Pacific coastline. Chile’s evacuation order was lifted at around 2 a.m. today.
