My Way News - Chilean town shaken by reminders of deadly quake
My Way News reports: "More than 170 tremors were felt in Navidad in just five weeks [...] So far, the recent tremors have not caused damage or injuries, but they're a frequent reminder of the 8.8-magnitude quake and tsunami in 2010 that devastated much of Chile's coast, including Navidad. That quake killed 551 people, destroyed 220,000 homes and washed away docks and seaside resorts, costing Chile $30 billion, or 18 percent of its annual gross domestic product."
