-- A 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck off Chile's Pacific coast Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
The quake's epicenter was 61 kilometers (38 miles) west-northwest of Iquique, Chile, and its depth was 35 kilometers (21.7 miles), the USGS said.
There were no immediate reports of damages or injuries, but local emergency officials activated a precautionary tsunami warning along the coast and urged residents to move to higher ground, regional emergency official Juan Basaez told CNN Chile.
