An 8.3 quake off the central coast of Chile struck at 6:54 p.m. and is prompting warnings of a tsunami as far as Hawaii, arriving shortly after 3:00 a.m. This is the strongest earthquake to hit the region in over 100 years.
Chile's National Emergency Office of the Ministry of Interior and Public Security said in a series of Twitter posts that residents were being urged to evacuate coastal regions and remain calm.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said tsunami waves measuring 3 meters (around 10 feet) higher than the tide level are possible for some coasts along Chile, and tsunami waves between 1 to 3 meters above tide level are possible for French Polynesia.
