A group of people walk over a crack in a highway between the localities of Iquique and Alto Hospicio, in Chile, April 3, 2014. Strong tremors were recorded on the northern coast of Chile late April 2, a day after a powerful quake triggered tsunami warnings along the South American seaboard. A magnitude 7.6 quake was recorded at 23:43 local time (02:43 GMT on April 3) 19 kilometers south of the city of Iquique, around 1,850 kilometers north of Santiago, the US Geological Survey said. Chilean President Michele Bachelet was evacuated from her hotel close to the shore in Arica, just south of the Peruvian border, where she was visiting areas affected by April 1st's quake that left six dead.
