SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) -- An earthquake has shaken central Chile, rattling buildings in the capital of Santiago, but country's emergency office says there are no reports of injury or damage.
The U.S. Geological Survey says Thursday's magnitude-5.5 quake took place at 2:22 p.m. (1:22 p.m. EST; 1722 GMT) and was centered 11 miles (18 kilometers) from the city of Los Andes.
As the quake hit, people in the capital fled into the streets, but there were no reports of damage.
Chile's Emergency Office ruled out a tsunami and said electricity services and telephones are functioning normally after some phone lines were temporarily down.
A magnitude-8.8 quake and tsunami in central Chile in February 2010 killed more than 500 people.
