Dang! It started out mild and then it got real! That was so violent. I wouldn't have stood under those swinging lights though.

I couldn't even imagine dealing with that situation at nighttime. You are sitting in your place, windows open, beautiful night and then a massive EQ goes off, followed by a crazy siren telling you to evacuate for possible tsunami coming in, and now you need to get away from the coast in nighttime while all the roads are jammed.... Unbelievable stuff

At least 4 aftershocks reported by Chilean agency after major earthquake in Pacific - @SISMOGUC


According to Global Incident map, they range from 5.0 to 6.2 - big in their own right.

Tsunami watch expanded -



Tsunami watch expanded to include Nicaragua, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Panama and Columbia following earthquake off Chile - @NWS_PTWC

When ever there is a swarm in one area a big quake seems to hit in another area, to bad there isn't a way to predict where.


I noticed that too. With the large magnitude 8+ quakes, when one happens, another couple will happen 120 degrees apart in longitude. It's almost as if the Earth were rebalancing the centrifugal load on its axis.

I'd guess it would be a combination of strain and combined with temperature. A warmer temperature of the mantle would make the rock softer and more flexible, while a colder temperature would make the rock brittle. I always had the theory that underground water could get involved too.

There's an theory that earthquakes happen close to an eclipse. And there is one in two weeks time:

Makes total sense...if everyone is panicking it will cause a traffic jam...happened here in ATL during the snow. People walked several miles in the snow and ice while others were simply stranded in their cars, stuck in traffic for hours on end.

They will get further on foot most likely. But they better get to a higher elevation too.

Probably why Puterman has predicted one in Vanuatu after this one

Wasn't trying to be crass... I'm amazed by the cafe patrons calmness, I generally am calm in crisis but I feel like if I got shook around like that I would absolutely panic.

Yes, besides the landslides blocking some of the outward bound roads......first tsunami has hit a small fishing village...no reports as such yet.

Thanks, needed silverlight right away to watch it, ugh..
would be more useful for them to make them html5 video streams, native browser support on the fly. I was actually suprised that in this day and age , i couldn't directly find a direct stream.

If anybody is interested for time and weather in Chile right now: www.timeanddate.com...

It's also strange that the quake came after the Solar flare that hit this week, that caused radio blackout:

I was about to go sleep when I knew about it. I have many, many friends in that area. Now I just want to know if all them are safe. Frustrating.
