Sound to big to be real? Not in Chile! They get some real stem-winders there.

These are subduction earthquakes.

AND...if you check out the seismocorders for Mt. Hood, Mt. Baker and Crater Lake, they felt it even harder than Rainier did!

The Anchorage earthquake was bigger at 9.2. 8.3 is still a massive quake.

Now, were trying to tune a HF radio to see if we can hear any live reports from ham operators in the region. Lots of amateur radio operators down there, but unfortunately conditions are not good right now from our west coast spot.
