    Chile -8.2 Earthquake hits Chile, 5' High Tsunami Spotted

    I realize this article says 8.0, but just heard on FOX that it's been up graded to 8.2. I'll try and find the link

    MAGNITUDE-8.0 QUAKE STRIKES NORTHERN CHILE

    SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) -- A powerful magnitude-8.0 earthquake struck in off Chile's northern coast Tuesday night, and authorities ordered an evacuation of coastal areas in case of a tsunami. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

    The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake struck 61 miles (99 kilometers) northwest of the city of Iquique at 8:46 p.m., shaking a region that has been rocked by numerous quakes over the past two weeks.

    Chile's National Emergency Office tweeted Tuesday night that it was asking everyone to evacuate the South American nation's coast.

    CNN Chile broadcast video of people in Antofagasta, a port city, walking through the streets as traffic piled up in some places. They appeared to be calm.


    A tsunami warning was in effect for Chile, Peru and Ecuador.

    A tsunami watch was issued for Colombia, Panama and Costa Rica, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    At least eight strong aftershocks followed in the few hours after the quake, including a 6.2 tremor. Seismologists have warned that more aftershocks and an even bigger quake cannot be discounted.
    The interior minister also told Chilean TV that some 300 women inmates had escaped from a prison.
    "We have asked citizens to evacuate the entire coast... there is no serious damage to houses... there have been no people hurt," said Chilean home office minister Mahmud Aleuy.
    I find that last quote difficult to believe.

    CHILEANS WORRY OVER STRING OF 300 QUAKES IN NORTH


    The unnerving activity began with a strong magnitude-6.7 quake on March 16 that caused more than 100,000 people to briefly evacuate low-lying areas, although no tsunami materialized and there was little physical damage from the shaking.

    But the land has not settled down. More than a dozen perceptible quakes were felt in the city of Iquique just on Monday.
