Six people were killed after an 8.2-magnitude earthquake hit Chile on Tuesday night.
In the Chilean port of Iquique, a truck is driven across a waterfront that was flooded by seawater after the powerful earthquake.
Several fishing vessels were swept from their berths - but elsewhere the damage was not as extensive as feared.
Iquique, 1,950 km (1,200 miles) north of the capital, Santiago, saw the worst damage because it was the closest city to the quake's epicentre.
The earthquake struck in the evening, triggering a tsunami warning and sending frightened residents into the streets.
Fearing a tsunami, some people sought refuge on the upper floors of apartment buildings in Iquique.
Several businesses in Iquique caught fire shortly after the quake.
A casino in the coastal town was flooded after being hit by waves of up to 2.1 m (6ft), triggered by the quake.
In Antofagasta, the authorities helped evacuate people from nursing homes and shelters.
A state of emergency was declared in Chile and a military convoy was seen entering Iquique, where 300 prisoners escaped from a female penitentiary. Many inmates later returned to the jail.
The quake triggered alerts as far north as Lima, the capital of Peru, where some coastal roads were closed.
Cars abandoned by residents on a hillside in Iquique were sent down the slope by the quake and its aftershocks.
