This paper analyses the organization of the seismicity associated with the 24th July 2001 earthquake in‘‘Quebrada de Aroma," northern Chile using data from the seismological network belonging to the Universidad de Tarapacá, Arica, Chile. There are very important features in the organization in a defined zone around the hypocenter. In fact, a fractal index is built, having significant statistical values before, during and after the event, such as that it can shed some light about predictability of major events.
