HONOLULU —

Officials say there is no threat of tsunami to U.S. coastal states in the Pacific from a magnitude-7.8 aftershock that struck off Chile.

The Pacific and national tsunami warning centers said Wednesday there was no threat to Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington.

The aftershock rocked Chile's northern coast, which was hit by a magnitude-8.2 earthquake Tuesday night.

The temblor caused buildings to shake in the port of Iquique (ee-KEEK'-kway) which saw some damage from the big quake on Tuesday.
