After Haiti the last thing the world needs is another huge natural disaster. If I were a religious man, I'd be praying for the people of Chile right now.

I'll keep trying to reconnect to RSOE EDIS but so far it seems to be overloaded and has crashed.

As far as I can tell no more aftershocks have occured. Still several 3-4mag quakes occurring in California on and off. Been about 7 to 10 since the big quake happened.

I just looked at USGS. They are listing it as 8.8 ? So what was it 8.3 8.5, or 8.8

CNN reporting a tsunami, but they don't know how big. Tsunami warnings up to Costa Rica.

You are right. The report lists 8.8 and states it has been reviewed by a seismologist... Scary stuff

This seemed to trigger a number of smaller scale quakes in California. I'm not sure if that is how it works but that appears to have happened.

I am now getting a big quake registering in Argentina in GEE, and appears to be coming from there too! This is before USGS posts it, just as a reminder.

Looks like the worst shaking was "Sever" in
Constitucion 38k
Tome 47k
Parral 27k
But no towns were in the Extreme or Violent areas of the quake

It looks like the entire Pacific Plate is active.




Edit: Look at the edges of the plate as compared to the earthquake activity in the last day.

Dear God. If this ends up to be as bad as Haiti, this is really going to begin terrifying people. Watch the blame shift towards "global warming" when the truth in it lies, that the shift is preparing to occur.

I prayed that these days would not come. Yet each and every disaster - weve had 2 HUGE earthquakes in the past 2 months + Norway Spiral, which for me anyways is indicative of the shift.
