Chile Earthquake Video | Magnitude 8.8 Quake Near Concepcion Could Mean Tsunami

28 sec read

In the early hours of Saturday morning, a huge earthquake measuring 8.8 on the Richter Scale hit Chile near the port town of Concepcion. The epicenter also wasn’t far away from the capital of Santiago.

At least 64 people are known to have died, and there are now fears of aftershocks to come and the possibility of one of these causing a tsunami.

Although this is a powerful earthquake and one which has killed several dozen people, this is nowhere near as bad as the Haiti earthquake from a few weeks ago.

Not only was the earthquake spread out over a longer fault-line, meaning less power being dissipated in one spot, but the buildings and infrastructure are more solid in Chile.

Chile is also much more able to cope with the aftermath of such a quake.
