The temblor struck 197 miles (317 kilometers) southwest of the capital, Santiago, at a depth of 36.9 miles at 3:34 a.m. local time, the USGS said.

8.8 is pretty huge

Correct.

 

God help the people of Chile and hope the human cost isn't too high, though I fear it will be.

Hawaii Escapes Major Tsunami

Wall Street Journal - Jim Carlton, Stu Woo - ‎56 minutes ago‎

AP Hawaii Department of Emergency Management officials use a bullhorn to alert homeless campers of the tsunami on ..

 

I am wondering if I will see anything in my window, which looks out on Victoria Harbor, HK

Tsunami warnings have been posted around the Pacific, including New Zealand, Mexico, the USA's Hawaii and California, Japan and Russia and the Australian East Coast (south of Queenslands Double Island Point to the southern tip of Tasmania) after a massive earthquake near Chile's second largest city Conception.

. . .

Past South American earthquakes have had deadly effects across the Pacific.

 

A tsunami after the magnitude 9.5 quake that struck Chile in 1960, the largest earthquake ever recorded, killed about 140 people in Japan, 61 in Hawaii and 32 in the Philippines. That tsunami was about 3.3 to 13 feet (one to four metre ) in height, according to Japan's Meteorological Agency.

 

The tsunami from Saturday's quake was likely to be much smaller because the quake itself was not as strong.

Apparently it didn't strike as shallow as the Haitian earthquake, so the damage is less severe.

 

NZ experienced a "dramatic series of water surges" but no damage.

The Tsunami's hit the East coast. That is, the coast facing Chile

 

But Surf Life saving for the nippers was cancelled at Muriwai = on the West Coast. That is, the coast facing Australia.

 

Nationwide alert to stay away from All beaches. Regardless of where the beaches were. It was such a nice day too....

SANTIAGO, Chile — The new Chilean president, Sebastián Piñera, had not even taken office on Thursday when major aftershocks rocked the central coast of this earthquake-ravaged country. But within hours of his inauguration, he appeared on television to announce that troops, relief supplies and even Mr. Piñera himself would be heading immediately to the quake zone.

From left, Presidents Evo Morales of Bolivia, Fernando Lugo of Paraguay and Rafael Correa of Ecuador during a 6.9 magnitude aftershock during the inauguration ceremony of Chilean President Sebastián Piñera on Thursday.

 

 

In rushing to respond aggressively to the tremors, it seemed that Mr. Piñera was trying to avoid the missteps of his predecessor, Michelle Bachelet, whose response to a devastating Feb. 27 earthquake was criticized as halting and ineffective. Mr. Piñera said he would fly to the hardest-hit areas later Thursday, and promised to “deploy all of the troops that may be necessary starting this evening to guarantee calm and public order.”

 

“This government will not hesitate one instant, nor wait one second to act,” he said. “But at the same time, we call on everyone to remain calm.”

 

Chile’s navy issued a tsunami alert following the aftershocks, and residents of coastal areas fled for higher ground, though the United States Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said a tsunami was not expected, and that there was no threat to Hawaii.

 

Reports of damage were limited, but an emergency official in Rancagua, a city to the east of the center of the quakes, said a highway overpass had collapsed

 

In the capital of Santiago, 95 miles north of the epicenters, windows rattled, buildings trembled and cellphone service failed.

 

In the legislative seat of Valparaíso, about 90 miles from the quakes, dignitaries who gathered for the inauguration of Mr. Piñera made nervous jokes and glanced at the shuddering ceiling of the National Congress building as the quakes hit, according to news reports.

 

Mr. Piñera, however, showed no sign of acknowledging the tremors, and continued to shake hands with leaders and supporters before taking the oath of office. But the building was evacuated after the inauguration.

 

The new interior minister, Rodrigo Hinzpeter, told reporters on television that the president had issued a “catastrophe order” for the area around Rancagua, extending the catastrophe zones already declared by Ms. Bachelet following the earlier quake.

 

The declaration meant the military would occupy the area to keep order and prevent looting like that which took place in Concepción, Mr. Hinzpeter said. But he said the government had not yet made a decision on whether to impose a nighttime curfew like there had been in the other quake-affected zones.

 

The first of the three major quakes on Thursday hit at 11:39 a.m. local time, with an estimated magnitude of 6.9. It was among the strongest to hit since the 8.8-magnitude quake on Feb. 27.

 

The United States Geological Survey reported that the first quake on Thursday struck the coast to the west of Rancagua and was quickly followed by one of 6.7 magnitude at 11:55 a.m., and another of 6.0 magnitude at 12:06 p.m. Scores of strong aftershocks have rattled Chile’s interior and its coastline since the Feb. 27 quake, one of the most powerful on record. That quake killed hundreds of people, toppled apartment buildings and bridges, and stirred up powerful waves that erased entire fishing villages hugging the southern coast of the country.

 

The United States Geological Survey also reported that two other shocks, with magnitudes of about 5.0, hit the central part of Chile and its south earlier Thursday.

 

Alexei Barrionuevo reported from Santiago, and Jack Healy from New York. Pascale Bonnefoy contributed reporting from Santiago.

Another earthquake - this one in China ( Qinghai )

 

The death toll of China's Qinghai 7.1-magnitude earthquake rose to 589 as of 1:20 am Thursday, according to the local quake-relief headquarters.

Beijing - At least 400 people were killed and 10,000 injured in the strongest earthquake to strike the country in nearly two years, jolting Qinghai province Wednesday morning.

The number of casualties is rising.

Witnesses said the 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which struck at 7:49 am, left many people buried under the debris in hardest-hit Yushu, a remote Tibetan autonomous prefecture where the average elevation is around 4,000 meters above sea level.

 

The quake and a string of aftershocks, the biggest being 6.3 magnitude, toppled houses, temples, gas stations and electric poles, triggered landslides, damaged roads, cut power supplies and disrupted telecommunications. A reservoir also developed cracks, which workers are trying to patch

Let's not forget - this one from April 7th:

7.7 off Sumatra

 

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/article-...c-Thailand.html

= = = = =

 

CallMeJoe picked up this forecast:

 

Here's what Tittel had to say on earthquakes (transcript of radio show taken from his newsletter):

 

2010 will be the year of the Earthquake with quakes rattling area’s that have never experienced a quake before.

 

* Three major ones within the US possible one north in the Vermont, Connecticut and Maine area along with the borders of Canada. One within the U.S. & Canada could also reach up to 5.5 in magnitude.

 

* One major quake will be at least 5.7 to 6.0 and that particular one may occur near the coast of Venezuela and Brazil.

 

* Two will be at a very high altitude and a 5.0. Mountains crumble from quakes and mud slides. One earth quake may take place in Antarctic causing major issues with the ice breaking apart and also effecting several scientist who are in the area the time the quake hits killing one of them.

 

* Mexico, India & China are also in danger for major quakes and storms. I believe the one will be so destructive that it could go down in the record books because of the magnitude along with the death toll.

 

* Another major quake will be reported off the coast deep in the ocean. This will be a big one and will in turn cause issues for several different coastal areas. This may most likely be linked to the tsunami that I kept seeing.

The earth must be upset.

My wife is saying a large Icelandic volcanic cloud is causing flight diversions in northern england and scandanavia

 

A lead-up to a Dec.2012 Pole Shift perhaps?

 

Some say that the US and UK governments know what is coming, which is why they have not

been shy about building so much debt.
