A magnitude 8.8 earthquake has struck near the city of Concepcion in Chile, the US Geological Survey (USGS) reports.
The quake, which struck early on Saturday, shook buildings and caused blackouts in as far away as parts of the capital, Santiago.
Michelle Bachelet, the outgoing president, said six people were killed and that more deaths were possible.
