Earthquake After Another

I can clearly remember the first day of January, and before that, how everyone greeted each other with a happy new year and made a huge fuss on twenty-ten. No longer did this celebration last after Haiti’s earthquake with a magnitude of 7.0 on Jan, 12th, when more than 230,000 people were killed in a matter of 35 seconds only.



Followed shortly by Chile’s 8.8 magnitude earthquake on February, 27th which killed at least 528 people.


And an aftershock earthquake, magnitude of
6.6 hits Chile on March, 5 causing more damages to the already shocked and devastated country.



Just yesterday, March, 8th, an earthquake of 6.0 magnitude hit eastern Turkey, killing at lease 57 people.




A list of significant Earthquakes in the year 2010:


* Magnitude 6.0 Eastern Turkey ~ March 08, 2010
* Magnitude 6.5 Southwest of Sumatra, Indonesia ~ March 05, 2010
