Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - Officials in Chile said some essential services, like water, fuel and electricity, are being re-establised three days after a powerful earthquake hit the region.

Hundreds of aftershocks have rattled the country's far northern regions since Tuesday's earthquake.

The death of a six-day-old girl from hyperthermia raised the death toll from the quake to seven. She had been sleeping in a tent in the middle of the street with her mother.

Soldiers are keeping a close watch on supermarkets and gas stations to prevent looting, as people line up for gasoline, water and food.
