    Default Uh oh Chile

    Do we have another Haiti on our hands? I wonder how bad this one's going to be.

    Chile's infrastructure is MUCH better then Haiti's is/were, also, Chile is used to big Earthquakes (I would even say Chile is more of a "developed" country rather then "developing"). Won't have anywhere near the same amount of suffering that Haiti did. Still fucking sucks though. 8.8 is scary massive.

    EDIT: World's strongest Earthquakes. Notice a pattern?

    — Dec. 26, 2004: A magnitude 9 quake off the Indonesian island of Sumatra triggered a tsunami that killed 226,000 people in 12 countries, including 165,700 in Indonesia and 35,400 in Sri Lanka.

    — August 13, 1868: A magnitude 9.0 quake in Arica, Peru (now Chile) generated catastrophic tsunamis; more than 25,000 people were killed in South America.

    — January 31, 1906: A magnitude 8.8 quake off the coast of Ecuador and Colombia generated a tsunami that killed at least 500 people.

    — November 1, 1755: A magnitude 8.7 quake and ensuing tsunami in Lisbon, Portugal killed an estimated 60,000 people and destroyed much of Lisbon.

    — July 8, 1730: A magnitude 8.7 quake in Valparasio, Chile, killed at least 3,000 people.

    — August 15, 1950: A magnitude 8.6 earthquake in Assam, Tibet, killed at least 780 people.

    — June 15, 1896: A magnitude 8.5 quake Sanriku, Japan, caused a tsunami that killed at least 22,000 people.

    — November 11, 1922: A magnitude 8.5 quake on the Chile-Argentina border killed several hundred people.

    — November 7, 1837: A magnitude 8.5 magnitude quake in Valdivia, Chile generated a tsunami that killed at least 58 people in Hawaii.

    Actually, I think this would be a good test to compare with California (not really but much better then Italy or Haiti). I know in Santiago the buildings are much newer. I would wager the same could be said for Concepcion. I am truly frightened about an Earthquake here in the Bay Area. Mostly because I commute using BART or the Bay Bridge and both make me really nervous.

    8.8?!!

    *I've been watching for a while now and it looks/sounds nothing like Haiti (thank goodness) but the deaths are still accumulating, especially in the smaller coastal towns...

    I gotta hand it to Chile I would expect much worse from an 8.8 quake. By no means is a quake a good thing, but at least it's not another Haiti.

    Tsunami could reach Australia (but not until Sunday Morning) - crazy shit. That's 7,000 miles. Knowing the Aussies, they'll probably get the surfboards out.

    I'm social science major so that's well out of my arena. Scary stuff.

    Apparently Chile had a 9.5 earthquake in the 60's. 9.5...!

    Indeed. The resulting Tsunami from that one killed people as far away as Japan.

    Dude I always get nervous whenever I'm in traffic in LA and stuck under something like a freeway overpass... some big piece of concrete. I sort of stress out until I'm able to get out from under it. I can't help picturing "the big one" happening right then.


    And yeah, looks like Chile knows what's up. It's sad they've had to rebuild this many times but I guess they're used to it.

    The quake in Chile was 1,000 times more powerful than the magnitude 7.0 earthquake that caused widespread damage in Haiti on Jan 12, killing at least 230,000, earthquake experts reported on CNN International.

    As TCHY said, Chile can handle their shit 1000x better. But the quake was also 1000x stronger. I hope everyone is ok there.

    "Wake up call at 7 told me there was a tsunami headed my way. Confirmed by NOAA (ETA 11:00 this morning) so heading to sea."
