Killer quake

Earthquake in chile


Resent research shows that in the 8.2 quake only six people died. Four people died from the actual earthquake and the other two people died of a heart attack from fear of the earthquake. Not only did this earthquake destroy many homes but it also brought on a very big tsunami which forced 900,000 people to flee in the northern coastal areas!


As for why the quakes all occur around the same time period: " its just a natural cycle of seismicity," Hayes explained.

Even though the quakes are not linked, anyone living in seismological active places should nevertheless be prepared
