Default 300 small Earthquakes in 1 week - Chile

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/ex...ne-week-n61531

Experts analyzing this flood of data are worried the increased seismic activity could be a sign the region is about to experience its first devastating quake in 137 years. The last event, a magnitude-8.5 quake in 1877, killed thousands of people and created a deadly tsunami that reached Hawaii and Japan.

"We usually get around 10 earthquakes per day in this area [many of them very small], but now we have been getting up to 100 per day," he told NBC News via telephone from the country's capital Tuesday.

Pardo told NBC News that seismologists are particularly concerned about this cluster of quakes because press reports following the 1877 event said there was a similar "swarm" of tremors beforehand.

"We have been waiting for a big one in this area for some time - this is a place where we are expecting an earthquake of over 8.5 magnitude," he said.

What? Didn't Chile just have a massive earthquake in 2010. It was a 8.8. Somebody needs to talk to their editor.

You know, I was just thinking that as I started the thread.

You are correct: 8.8 in 2010 (different area than what is being discussed in the article I believe)

It was ranked the six largest earthquake in recorded history. How did they miss that one?

EDIT: I guess the article is referring to that part of Chile and not the country as a whole. Although, I'm pretty sure that part of Chile felt the 2010 earthquake.

Chile will always be at risk for raging quakes. The ring of fire rolls right down their entire coast line.

Everyone in California all worried about global warming and none of them are prepared for what is really going to come. A big earthquake!

Well, when we all lose our home roof, we will need the temps to be higher to keep warm. Thank you Global warming.

We got screwed this year. Global warming models say Calif should be hit by rain not drought.

Geeze i hope it's not drought it will screw up the fishing in the High Sierras.

America will sit around worrying about global warming but it will still be Earthquakes, fire, volcanoes that scare the **** out of me.

What if Yellowstone blows up? !

Japan's quake was a 9.0, which is almost 10 times greater then the one in Chile today. I don't think the tsunami will be nearly that devastating.

I don't know. It can vary some but a tsunami generated from a megathrust earthquake pretty much depends on how much land was displaced during the slip and that's what determines the magnitude of the quake. So if Japan's was nearly 10 times the size, you could reasonably say the tsunami in Chili will be 10 times less then that of Japans. Just watch those videos of Japan, that was a monster tsunami. I'm in no way saying an 8.0 isn't big but for every point on the scale, it's a factor of 10x. So a 9.0 is truly quite a different beast then even an 8.0.

It also has to do with the depth of the quake. I wanna say Japans was only a 4 foot wave.
