Today, a 8.8 magnitude earthquake hit the Latin American country of Chile at 1:34 EST this morning, spreading with dozens of aftershocks later after. As of now, there are a reported 214 dead and possibly thousands injured. Chile has buildings that are built to withstand earthquakes after a 9.5 magnitude earthquake (most energetic earthquake in history) ravaged the country in 1960, and the strongest earthquake since the 9.1 Indian Ocean earthquake that killed hundreds of thousands in 2004 after an ensuing tsunami. Due to the location of the earthquake, there have already been alarms halfway across the Earth in case of a Tsunami, all of which are hoping the best that there is not a repeat of the Tsunami that occurred in 2004. I am hoping for the best for Chile to make a quick recovery after this tragic natural disaster.
