Today, the U.S. Geological Survey released a report showing that the country experienced its worst earthquake in nearly 50 years.
The earthquake, the first of its kind since the 1906 Los Angeles quake, killed at least 15 people and caused billions of dollars of damage.
In total, it triggered widespread destruction and billions of gallons of water and gas leaked into the environment.
The USGS says the magnitude 6.9 earthquake killed at the quake’s epicenter in central Chile.
The agency says more than 100,000 homes were damaged or destroyed.
The quake’s death toll is likely to rise.
The U.K. also experienced a major earthquake in its wake on March 21, 2016, that caused at least one death and billions in damages.
