7.7 Earthquake in Northern Chile! (We’re OK!)

Posted by Steve on November 14th, 2007 — Posted in Your Guest Host Steve

A huge earthquake struck earlier today in northern Chile, about 100km north of where I was visiting this past weekend. We could feel it here in La Serena (about 4 min after the quake struck) and it was very different from the smaller, local earthquakes. A ‘slower’ rolling wave as opposed to the regular shaking.

USGS Information

Nothing else to add, but I know people would be concerned and want to know if we were affected.

Have you felt the aftershocks today? Glad this did not happen while you were at the VLT.

Hello, Lisa and Steve……we thought of you two right away with the earth quake and are glad that all is OK. We are coming to visit you in March with Diana, Courtney and Perry. We are reading books, looking at maps and hoping to do so many different things. You’ll have to let us know if there is something you need from here so we can bring things with us. There’s time to plan. Looking forward to meeting you both.
