900 times more intense than Haiti

Buildings were damaged in the capital, Santiago, 200 miles from the epicenter and the quake was felt as far away as Buenos Aires, Argentina, 800 miles away. It is the seventh strongest ever recorded in the world. A tsunami warning has been issued for the entire American and Canadian West Coast, including Alaska and Hawaii.
