Shaking and moving

8 Mar 2010

As if suffering through an magnitude 8.8 earthquake wasn’t scary enough, some cities in Chile and as far as Brazil appear to have actually moved. Permanently.

The magnitude 8.8 quake that struck Chile, moved the entire city of Concepcion 10 feet to the west… the country’s capital, Santiago, moved 11 inches west. Even Buenos Aires, nearly 800 miles from the epicenter, shifted an inch.
