CHILE:EASTERISLANDREGION

This earthquake was recorded at a focal depth of 17km below the ground in Chile on 10-09-2014 T02:14:44, where it released a sizeable amount of seismic energy and reached a magnitude of 7.0 on the richter scale. Considering this quake occurred 17km under the surface, it is best classified as a deep geologic event. An earthquake of this magnitude would likely be causing considerable damage to specially designed structures; well-designed frame structures thrown out of plumb. Damage would be great in substantial buildings, with partial collapse. Expect that buildings would be shifted off foundations.
