Earthquake in Central Chile, Sunday March 25, 2012

Why it happened again. An earthquake just hit Chile, before 9pm, local time. Let’s hope that the Chilean government (ONEMI, the national emergency agency) alerted citizens living on coastal regions to distance themselves from the sea, this time around, so as to not relive the tsunami disaster in Dichato of 2010. Back then, people were told there was no danger. 500 people perished in that fiasco as a result (negligence?).

The epicenter of today’s quake was Talca, located in central Chile, and rated 7.2 on the Richter scale.
