Less than two weeks after the strongest quake in over 50 years hit central Chile, an earthquake with a 7.2 magnitude again rocked Chile on March 11, 2010 with two major aftershocks recorded within 30 minutes.
Extensive damage was reported in the central Chilean city of Rancagua. Work is still being done to rebuild what was damaged.
