Well that would explain the no tsunami warning issued.

That is a huge aftershock if that is what it is....

Where is an expert??!?!

Not an expert..... But, I'd say that is normal size aftershock. The epicenter looks strange to me though.

Or New Zealand.

I wish it would all calm down...humanity has enough on it's plate right now.



this worries me... our September 2010 quake followed lots of activity there

Hear ye! hear ye!....I am officially calling this 8.2 a foreshock.

www.csmonitor.com...

It is 8:50 central standard time, on the second of April 2014


This particular area has not seen a major rupture in 137 years.....since 1877!

And the moderate aftershocks have turned off at 11ish a.m. today.

I do indeed hope I am wrong....

These are probably in this latest sequence of foreshocks....I am afraid we are going to see a 9+

This is what I've read, too. Maybe even a little smaller than 1.

I was like okay, an aftershock when I saw the 7.4, but 7.8, I dunno.

It was downgraded to a 7.6.

Still huge though!

I can't say anything about technicalities. I just feel like this one wandered away from it's friends a bit. Please don't take anything I say as an alarm. I am a kindergartner in the school of quakes.

Wow.... me too. It's an awful big aftershock, this is for sure! Let's see what PM has to say.

7.8 after an 8.2 seems odd... but time will tell.

I cant help but wonder what kind of pressure this is applying on other faults along the pacific rim of fire... here in Cali i am well prepared if that release would decide to come up this way..

Thanks and thanks for the link/info. If you are in THAT grade then I surely am still in the womb...or just a twinkle in my Daddy's eye! Just trying to soak up all the information I can...looking for patterns as well.

My question would be , is it normal for the aftershocks to go so far up and down in magnitude ?

Just a neat little educational video that I enjoy. Thought I'd share with ya'll.

I was just about to post a similar one because people were asking about aftershocks.


Based on the japan 2011 quake that was a 9.0, it looks like it's biggest aftershock was a 7.9. For chile, the main one was a 8.2 and an aftershock? of 7.6. That's a pretty big aftershock if that's what it is. I think someone else on here has already noted that the location is a little different. What do you guys/girls think? Foreshock or aftershock?

General rule is aftershocks are supposed to be at least 1.0 less than the main event, so the 7.8 might indicate that we aren't done yet.
