Good to hear an explanation of the great distances which are open to damage transfer from these very large occassional earthquakes. The land 'quakes' can have a shorter range than the underwater oceanic earthquakes and land movements.
Sometimes it is the land movements which cause greater damage than the earthquake type movements and slippages.
Linked; earthquakes for 02/21-28/2010, from a global perspective viewed over the Middle East, both on the near side and both sides of the Earth globe. The Chilean quakes are included- 150 plus in a week. Well patterned and orderly occurrences.
Very educational, or, very curious and apparently informative. Details at my blog topic with images:
