A wave of small earthquakes that has caused alarm in southern Chile may be related to the birth of an undersea volcano near Aysen Fjord.
More than 1,700 tremors have been recorded recently in the rugged, sparsely populated area dotted with volcanoes and cut with fjords. Dozens of people slept outside or in tents on recent nights, fearing a larger quake might follow and topple their houses.
Most of the quakes have been too small to be felt, but some registered up to magnitude 4, according to the government's Emergency Bureau.
