(ABC) — A massive 8.8-magnitude earthquake rocked Chile early this morning, killing at least 78 and prompting tsunami warnings in areas as far away as the western coast of the United States.
The earthquake, which hit just after 3 a.m. local time, was 64 times stronger than the one that devastated Haiti last month but was much deeper, likely making the number of casualties far fewer than those in the Caribbean nation
PID COMMENT: The ring of fire is alive and kicking. Yesterday’s 7.0 in Japan followed by this one in Chile. Keep an eye on the American northwest.
