It's a pretty shallow one too, so the shalking will be a lot worse. That subduction zone off the W coast of South America has produced 9+ magnitude quakes in the past. With all of the volcanic activity going on in Central and South America lately, hopefully extra pressure isn't being applied to that plate that would trigger a larger event in the near future.

you might like to share this in the Quake Watch 2009 thread. It hasn't been too active since those 7's around Fiji and Samoa
