Chile Could Be Facing A Large Earthquake And Tsunami

Fact checked
Chile may be about to get hit by a major earthquake and tsunami

Over the last few days dangerous seismic activity has been observed in Chile with two 6.9 earthquakes hitting the country. 

There have been no reports of major damage, as yet, and both quakes occurred within an hour of each other as the USGS reports:

Normally when two or more quakes this large occur in the same area, with such a close magnicture, then the chances of them being “foreshocks” increase dramatically.

A foreshock is an earthquake that occurs before a larger seismic event (the mainshock) and is related to it in both time and space.

It is very plausible that an earthquake of a magnitude of 8+ along with a tsunami will occur, following these two foreshocks. We will keep you updated with this story as it progresses.
