Various maps of the 8.8 quake

List of earthquakes on that map

I'm counting 8 earthquakes over 6.0 at that location. One of the aftershocks was 6.9 -- any one of those "aftershocks" would be the screaming news headline if it hit anywhere in the U.S.

54 additional aftershocks so far measuring over 5.0

People that live in high rises distinctly felt the quake here in Buenos Aires. There were no consequences though.

Any word from Aloha? I know Aloha is not to far from me. So far ebb and flow of the tides have been noticeable but nothing drastic yet. We'll see what happens within the next few hours. I'm sitting on high ground watching the local news. Our family is getting calls left and right from relatives all over the US mainland. High anxiety but nothing exciting yet. We'll see.

This reminds me of something blast said at lunch a few days ago. "we are preparing for more than the end of the world".

I was looking at CNN and how they said that looters were being dispersed from near empty grocery stores.

Even as a child, we had at least 2 weeks of food on hand because of the blizzards we would endure. Actually we only went to the store every 2 weeks even in the summer.

Here are some interesting facts.

I think the 1960 event was two different main shocks / earthquakes, not a fore- or after-shock. But I can't find a reference offhand - the first one became at best a footnote after only eight hours when the 9.5 hit.

The one good thing about having two in 1960 - all of their responders had gone to their stations to deploy to the first quake by the time the second occurred - they were already near their equipment. Also, anyone close enough to feel the first was already out of and away from buildings when the 9.5 happened.
