WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A massive magnitude 8.0 earthquake on Tuesday off the coast of Chile, near the mining port of Iquique, sparked a tsunami warning for all of Latin America's Pacific coast, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

"An earthquake of this size has the potential to generate a destructive tsunami that can strike coastlines near the epicenter within minutes and more distant coastlines within hours," it said.

It’s a big one, and very shallow.

I hope so too, but have a bad feeling about it. Probably because it is such a shallow one.

I assume we are on tsunami watch - anyone know how long before the coastal areas will be out of danger?

Must be earthquake season - LA, Yellowstone, and now this.

It’s all that off shore fracking they’re doing off the coast of Chile.

Check out Google maps for Iquigue, Chile. Satellite view. Looks vulnerable to a tsunami to me.

As these quakes keep “popping up” along the pacific rim’s ring of fire it was only a matter of time that one of them would be a monster.

8 points is really huge

If the Yellowstone Caldera blows, we’re not that far away. If it does, it’s been nice knowing all you FReepers.

It ususally erupts every 60,000 years. It has now been 64,000 years.

I was told that by my Valley farmer friends! My two labs slept on a moving cement patio during Coalinga in 86! They had been swimming for a while but I gotta say..they were cute but dumb.
Loved em to pieces!

The last three Yellowstone eruptions have been roughly 600,000 years apart - not 60,000.

If it erupts in the next year, it won’t be early; if it erupts 10,000 years from now, it won’t be late.

Whoa. I hadn’t seen that. Animals can sense these (low frequency disturbances? Either way, the buffalo has been around a lot longer than me. If they are moving, I’d trust their instinct. My prayers for those along coastal Chile and adjacent areas. They’re a few time zones away from here on the East and I hope they have safe passage in the daylight. God, please protect those on the sea.

Every 600,000 years...and it has been 640,000 years. Off by a factor of 10 years. We're still 40,000 years late. I'm 150 miles from Yellowstone (SW).

The statement was not meant to be taken literally. But if it were lets examine it. Most of the people that would be affected by such an event would enjoy watching any like minded freeper die a slow painful death. Such people regard us as lunatics, religious nuts, gun nuts. Our desire for a limited unobtrusive government with low taxes and few regulations is somehow seen as racist sexist bigoted and homophobic. It is seen as insensitive and uncaring. And the dangerous people that have been brainwashed and conditioned to think this way are all to ready hand over their liberty and liberty of their families and their neighbors and the liberty of 100s of millions of people they do not know. It would sadden me the loss of innocent life especially children. However, many believe that a super quake will one day wipe out the west coast. I just hope in the great tragedy something good comes of it.
