Magnitude 12 quake would be so strong that half of the planet would have felt it. Its 100x stronger than magnitude 10 earthquake, 1000x stronger than
magnitude 9. Strongest ever recorded earthquake was 1960 Chile earthquake, magnitude 9.5, which caused Pacific-wide Tsunami. Also, magnitude 12
earthquake would shatter the ground and create wide crevices. And I don't think so strong earthquake is even possible. Magnitude 10 is absolute max
in tectonic quakes, magnitude 12 maybe in supervolcano eruptions and meteor impacts.
