An earthquake has struck in South America, just off the coast of Chile, causing devastating effects.

 

According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake hit 7.7 magnitude and struck just 140 miles southwest of Puerto Montt today.

 

 

This has triggered a tsunami warning from the US Pacific Warning Centre, which could affect areas just over 600 miles of the earthquake's epicentre.

 

The Chilean Navy has also issued a tsunami alert.

 

 

People in the area are also being warned about after shocks they might face in the hours after the quake.

 

Such a terrible thing to happen on Christmas day.
