Powerful 6.3 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes Argentina

A strong earthquake struck the northwestern area of Argentina today, the same day that a massive 8.8 magnitude quake struck neighboring Chile. The 6.3 magnitude quake's epicenter was about 15 miles north of the city of Salta, about 800 miles north-northwest of capital Buenos Aires, and struck at midday.

So far, one fatality has been reported. An eight-year-old boy died, and two other children were injured, a hospital director in Salta revealed.

Officials said that the earthquake in Argentina was not an aftershock of the massive 8.8 magnitude quake that struck Chile. It was a separate event.
