Monster Earthquake hit's Chile

Found 27th Feb 2010
This is not a normal earthquake, this is an 8.8!!! (Almost 100 times stronger than the Haiti Earthquake)
Which is so big, that is very hard to describe the danger imposed.
I really hope that it hasn't killed many people
Damn.

A 9 Feet high Tsunami has already been recorded in the Pacific Ocean

53 Countries recieved Tsunami Warnings.

Aftershocks of up to 6.9 have been recorded (Almost the size of the Haiti Earthquake)

The report I saw said 89, but expect it to be considerably more.

Tsunami at 9ft? I'd call that a big wave!! LOL

here we go again 9 ft tsunami, could be similar scenes to the 2004 one that killed 100's of thousands.

8.8 is MASSIVE

Blimey, you give money to Haiti because they have a 7.0 and then Chile have an 8.8.

I'm waiting this time to donate in case Paraguay get a 9.4.

It's almost 100 times larger, not 500. But it's still a massive amount larger.
As each single number on the Richter Scale makes the strength 10 times larger.

I don't mean to offend, I just find it funny that someone posts a story 6 hours after the event.
