6.0 AND GREATER EARTHQUAKES ARE REPORTED ON THIS SITE AND ALL EARTHQUAKE STATS PERTAIN TO 6.0 AND GREATER MAGNITUDE QUAKES.
A great 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck off the west coast of Chile on April 24, 2017, at 21:38:26 UTC, at a depth of 25 km, reported USGS.
Chile sounded a tsunami alarm, which sent residents to areas of higher altitude. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, however, issued a Tsunami Information Statement, although tsunami waves of 5 feet ran ashore.
Tsunami waves are very forceful and they retract into the ocean rapidly. Even 5-foot waves are capable of causing fatalities. Residents near coastal areas should flee to higher ground during such a strong earthquake as a safety precaution.
53 aftershocks have hit this region of Chile, from 3 – 5.4 magnitude, since the 7.1 quake.
775 major (6.0+) to super (8.0+) earthquakes hit various places worldwide over the last 1,521 days. Among these were 89 7.0+ and 9 8.0+ magnitude quakes.

Major to super magnitude earthquakes have increased to more than one every two days on average during the last 50 months.
Jesus said these signs would appear before He returns, “Nation will rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in diverse places“ Matthew 24:7.
“Great earthquakes shall be in diverse places and famines and pestilences, and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven” Luke 21:11.
Jesus also said, “Blessed are those servants whom the Master, when He comes, will find watching“ Luke 12:37.
