    Chile M8.2 Quake – Is Something Bigger Coming?

    Whenever a large earthquake happens, there is always the possibility that it isn't actually the main event! It could actually be a foreshock to an even larger quake! That quake could be up to 2 magnitudes bigger!

    On March 9th 2011, Japan experienced a pretty large 7.2 foreshock which led to the March 11th M9.0 main event!

    In the past 10 years there have been 6, M8.5+ Earthquakes! 2 of those have been 9+! In the 40 years previous to that, there were.......zero M8.5+ quakes! Pretty alarming evidence huh!

    Worse still, of those 6 quakes 5 have been on the Eastern side of the Pacific Plate, otherwise known as the Ring of Fire! Only 1 such quake was on the Western side and that was located in.....Chile, in February 2010!

    Without a doubt throughout the next few days, weeks and months, Chile needs to stay on high alert.
