Topic - Strong Earthquake-warning !!!!
Posted: May 14 2015 at 1:18pm By KiwiMum
Am I right in thinking the largest ever recorded earthquake on earth was a 9.5 in Chile in 1960. Is it possible to have a larger earthquake?

We've had a lot of felt earthquakes here in NZ in the last few weeks. NZ gets dozens of quakes every day but most are not felt by anyone. Of course we are expecting the Alpine Fault to rupture at any moment. It last went 297 years ago in 1717 and it's return time is 300 years + or - 30 years. According to the probability experts, it is more likely to rupture this afternoon than tomorrow morning. It is expected to be an 8.2 or larger.
