Chile- 8,8

Not as big as the 1960 quake that still holds the record for the world’s largest earthquake (9,6), but as most of you already know, a large earthquake occurred this morning on the boundary of the Nazca and South American plates—the thrust fault that created the Andes mountains.

Check out the science from USGS

And pray for those who have suffered great loss as a result.
