Something is breaking loose.

I'd say the Nazca plate is sliding under the pacific plate.

an earth quake of that magnitude would have created a far greater tsunami than 3 - 5 feet unless the force was directed towards the west.

I told my husband early friday afternoon that a big one was coming. I knew it! I have a blind dog, the day of the Haiti quake she was acting very strange and kept hiding under a cover or under the bed or table. I also had strong stomach pains today which would indicate the Chile area if you believe that humans and animals can 'feel' one coming as I do. A 7 in Japan and now an 8.8

edit to add: I got excited and forgot to tell you all that my dog was again under the cover today, acting very scared and I told my hubby a big one was coming in the next 24 hrs or less.

USGS confirms that tsunami waves have approached 9 feet.


What a shockingly big quake! My thoughts are with all those effected.

there was also a CME from the Sun a few days ago, arrival to Earth was predicted at 27/28, which means today...

coincidence?

the same happened before Haiti earthquake

hahaha yes the switzerland vs. norway curling match repeat takes precedence over a 8.8 quake. it is just mind-boggling that they won't cover this.
