The magnitude-8.8 earthquake that rocked the west coast of Chile last month was violent enough to move the city of Concepcion at least 10 feet to the west and the capital, Santiago, about 11 inches to the west-southwest, researchers said.

Its all relative.
We are spinning round (Moving) at about a thousand miles per hour and then the whole galaxy is hurling through space even faster.
When 10 feet of movement is most interesting is when a faultline cuts through a stadium or large building.

i hope Chile and Alaska sees this as divine warning since capitol was moved 11 inches to the west

Hbr 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.

Eze 27:28 The suburbs shall shake at the sound of the cry of thy pilots.

Amo 9:1 I saw the Lord standing upon the altar: and he said, Smite the lintel of the door, that the posts may shake: and cut them in the head, all of them; and I will slay the last of them with the sword: he that fleeth of them shall not flee away, and he that escapeth of them shall not be delivered.

Mat 10:14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

Wow. I'm shocked at what the Chile quake did! I feel bad for all the people that live there. Some may not even have homes!
Try to help those people.
