SANTIAGO, Chile — A strong earthquake was registered off the northern coast of Chile late Friday, but the country’s National Emergency Office said there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The Chilean Navy’s Hydrography and Oceanography Service said there were no signs of a possible tsunami in the temblor’s wake.

The epicenter was about 55 miles (88 kilometers) northwest of Concepcion, and about 267 miles (430 kilometers) southwest of the capital of Santiago.
