8.8 Earthquake Rocks Chile: 6.9 Shakes Japan


An 8.8 Earthquake has rocked Chile this morning, killing dozens so far and triggering Tsunami warnings for Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Australia, Russia and other Pacific Islands.  There is even a warning for the coast of California.

The Earthquake hit about 3:30 in the morning over there.    So far, there has been 2 aftershocks over there, one at 6.2 and another at 5.4.

This came just hours after a 6.9 earthquake shook Japan.  There is no major damage there.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those effected by these events.-Dr.FB
