Magnitude 5.6 earthquake strikes Chile

A magnitude 5.6 earthquake struck Chile at 1:11 p.m. (11:11 a.m. ET) Saturday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. The quake, centered about 90 kilometers (55 miles) south-southwest of Concepcion, was 13.7 kilometers (8.5 miles) below the surface, the USGS said.

A magnitude 7.1 quake struck 100 miles south of Concepcion on January 2, and a magnitude 8.8 quake struck near the city a year ago, killing hundreds.

    How spacious and void the mind not able to comprehend that violent weather extremes, not just overall avg. warmer temperatures, are evidence of 'global warming'(a naturally occuring event, made violent by mans pollution and constant sucking from the earth of the main source of that pollution)
