Chilean earthquake of 8.8 magnitude. The earthquake triggered several aftershocks, some of significant size. The body count exceeded 700 people as of the third day afterward as well as significant damage to nearby cities and towns, particularly coastal areas. In addition to tremors, a tsunami warning went out across the Pacific and at least one wave surge buried coastal areas of Chile.
The earthquake shifted the earth's axis and some scientists calculate that the day has shortened by the miniscule amount of 1.26 microseconds.
