In the history of this world there have been many large disastrous earthquakes The largest earthquake ever recorded was the earthquake that took place in Chile South America in 1960 This earthquake caused much damage Many people were injured and a large number of people were killed The earthquake caused a large tsunami and damaged many towns The enormous tremble of the earthquake was felt at different places around the world The famous Chilean earthquake was recorded as 95 M This occurred on May 22 1960 The earthquake struck at 211 pm local time The epicenter of the earthquake was 60 meters down below the eastern Pacific Ocean floor about 100 miles off the west coast of Chile The towns that were most affected by the earthquake were Valdivia and Puerto Montt because they are so close to the center of this massive earthquake Approximately 30 minutes before the big 95 earthquake hit there were foreshocks The civilians that were in the area that felt the large forshocks ran into the streets There were 2 300 people that died from the earthquake that day and over 3 000 people injured If it were not for the forshocks the people would not have been prepared for the immense 95 earthquake that was heading their way There would have been many more deaths and injuries if there were no foreshocks Since the earthquake occured on the ocean floor it caused a tsunami heading in all directions The tsunami reached 25 meters high and was traveling more then 200 miles per hour The tsunami wiped out much of the beaches and anything near the beaches The tsunami reached Chile and created a lot of destruction but it even reached Hawaii and also the coast of Japan and the Philippines where there were a few more casualties The tsunamis flooded the streets and wiped out all vegetation and construction that took place near the beach
