This is one of the most illogical threads I've seen on here. How the hell is Haiti below Chile? :lol: Access a map, ffs.

 

I meant across to Chile, both in South America, well Central America for Haiti if you want to be picky.

Tons of them a year.  Not too worried, but now might not be a bad time to go into bible sales.

 

Richter magnitudesDescriptionEarthquake effectsFrequency of occurrence
Less than 2.0MicroMicroearthquakes, not felt.About 8,000 per day
2.0-2.9MinorGenerally not felt, but recorded.About 1,000 per day
3.0-3.9MinorOften felt, but rarely causes damage.49,000 per year (est.)
4.0-4.9LightNoticeable shaking of indoor items, rattling noises. Significant damage unlikely.6,200 per year (est.)
5.0-5.9ModerateCan cause major damage to poorly constructed buildings over small regions. At most slight damage to well-designed buildings.800 per year
6.0-6.9StrongCan be destructive in areas up to about 160 kilometres (100 mi) across in populated areas.120 per year
7.0-7.9MajorCan cause serious damage over larger areas.18 per year
8.0-8.9GreatCan cause serious damage in areas several hundred miles across.1 per year
9.0-9.9GreatDevastating in areas several thousand miles across.1 per 20 years
10.0+EpicNever recorded; see below for equivalent seismic energy yield.Extremely rare (Unknown)

The first one was in Haiti, today's was in Chilie. The eartquake moved "down" not up or across. And the earthquakes aren't related! Although the one in Argentina is probably a result of the Chille one

Fair enough, but how would the earthquake moving across in any way indicate that it would then head north towards California?

Chile suffers a fairly major earthquake fairly often. Hell there was earthquake of 7.0 when in Bolivia when i was in that neck of the woods but as the population is fairly sparse it doesnt effect too many people luckily.

 

Also this thread makes no sense what so ever.

 

But you should get down the bookies.

Maybe it's wanting to go and see the Golden Gate bridge?

"At least 214 have been reported killed and nearly a quarter of the globe put on tsunami alert after one of the most powerful earthquakes of modern times hit South America. "

 

8.8 is so much bigger than 7.0 it's not funny  :no:

I wonder what would happen if the world saw an earthquake at a perfect 10.

Well the crater at Chixiclub in Mexico would have regesttered something like 12 or 13 on the richter scale. That potentially (but I don't believe it) killed the dinosaiurs.

10 isn't a perfect earthquake. There can be higher impacts from asteroids and things of that nature. I don't think we've recorded higher than 9.4 or something, but that was in a desolate place.

 

If i remember correctly, a "10" earthquake is described as "epic".

Yeah, I know there's bigger earthquakes on the scale. I said perfect ten to say 10.0, not 10.2 and so on. It's late though so I apologize for whatever confusing stuff I put out there meaning something else. :lol:

I agree what a stor klokkeslutt.

The awards are svært sent, Kaizero.

 

Anyway, the death toll should remain fairly low in comparison with Haiti. Much better construction and very much less densely populated area.

 

Harsh as it sounds but best South American country to happen to. If had been elsewhere could've be way more deaths.
