    8.8 earthquake hits Chile

    and only 27 miles down. This is going to be another big tragedy as Tsunami warnings are in effect.

    There was also a 7.0 earthquake in Japan today

    Not good...

    Massive 8.8-magnitude earthquake hits Chile - Yahoo! News

    I have had a theory that these quakes are related. A quake hits on one side of the rim and almost a counteraction in another part of the rim.

    8.8 is about as big as they get.


    Walking on water is easy. Just do it in December when it's frozen.

    Re: 8.8 earthquake hits Chile

    The largest earthquake ever recorded struck the same area of Chile on May 22, 1960. The magnitude-9.5 quake killed 1,655 people and left 2 million homeless. The tsunami that it caused killed people in Hawaii, Japan and the Philippines and caused damage to the west coast of the United States.
    Hopefully not too many lives were/will be lost.

    That is freaking huge. 500 times more intense than the Haiti quake, and a 131 ft wave. Holy crap

    Re: 8.8 earthquake hits Chile

    Sorry, I was referring to the tsunami as they are covering the tsunami warnings on tv right now and an internal joke about ruling a small pacific island some day.

    There is a lot of plate movement this year. Last year was the year of Celebrity Death and this year is the year of the Earthquakes.
