Strong quake strikes Chilean coast


www.abc.net.au

US geologists say an earthquake measuring 6.7 on the moment magnitude scale has struck Chile's Pacific coast, the latest in a string of tremors to rattle the region in recent weeks.

The epicenter of the quake, which struck at 5:09am (local time), was some 130 kilometres north-northeast of Antofagasta.

I was just looking for more info and came across this:
The honor of greatest earthquake of all time goes to the 1960 Chile earthquake


Facts: This earthquake was the largest ever instrumentally recorded. It measured a 9.5 on the Moment Magnitude (Mw) scale, but registered only an 8.5 on the Ms scale.source


9.5
in 1960... hope this isn't a buildup to something bigger!
