On Feb. 27 a great earthquake hit Chile. It was an 8.8 on the Richter scale and caused a very great amount of damage to the land. This matters to the world because now with the add on of Chile all the relief funds for Haiti probably wont be as much. With 2 devastating earthquakes the world needs to work together so that victims can live a normal life again. I find this interesting because I was just learning about the different plate boundaries that cause earthquakes. This particular earthquake was caused by a convergent boundary where one plate sub-ducts under another one.
