Apocalyptic images showing the impact of the 8.3 magnitude earthquake that struck Chile and killed 12 are staggeringly similar to photos from the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, which killed almost 16,000.

The quake was felt as far away as Buenos Aires, Argentina. Authorities issued a tsunami alert for Chile's entire Pacific coast.

A series of aftershocks, including one measuring 7.0 magnitude and three above 6, shook Chile following Wednesday's quake, considered to be the world's strongest so far this year and the biggest to hit the quake-prone nation since 2010.
