In geography aspect, Nazca Plate is an oceanic plate located in the Pacific Ocean near the west of south America. It's only contains Ocean continent and it's moving toward to South america plate, and colliding with it. And so a convergent plate boundary is formed at that zone, moreover the Nazca plate subducts under the South America plate.
There was an earthquake in Chile, as Nazca Plate collides with the South America plate. Before that, energy is stored in the rocks under the plates movement. When the energy exceeds the rocks' strength, the rocks break and displaced suddenly,

and release energy through a period of seismic waves, as known as earthquake.
