poor folks....can’t imagine....
Best to live in a tent for a while.
That is a pretty good size shaker and might do in buildings that are barely standing. I would imagine all those types of building are empty of people.
Different area. Northern Chile. Did a port visit near there in Iqueque.
And a 4.6 in Columbia, look out California, here they come!!!!
Is it just me or are things heating up a bit?
Dang ... a 6.4 all by itself is nothing to sneeze at.
As an aftershock to an 8.8 ... it just ain’t Chile’s week.
Same old same old. There are quakes going on all the time.
in the past year, i've never seen this level of seismic activity.
5. Operations at Antofagasta flagship Los Pelambres mine resumed on Sunday after the quake temporarily disrupted power supplies and the company said it did not expect further disruption at the site. Its mines in the north were not affected.
Another, bigger aftershock (?) of the Chile EQ, same magnitude as the one yesterday in Taiwan.
bd, these “aftershocks” are as big as our Northridge main event...wow.
Is there a faultline (like the San Andreas running through California) running through western South America??
Prayers going up for all being affected by these quakes!!!
Different area, might be a new quake, not aftershock.
Is there a way to zoom in with this earthquake program? We love it, but haven’t figured it out yet.
Sunday? You have me confused now.
And this doesn’t seem to be one of those situations where plate tension release is good.
