In 2010, central Chile experienced an 8.8 magnitude mega earthquake, one of the strongest ever recorded by seismographs. It was so strong that years later, the far away continent of Antarctica is still experiencing the aftershocks.
But history may repeat itself yet again. Experts believe that Chile may be experiencing stronger earthquakes in the near future. They estimate that an earthquake as strong as magnitude 9 will wreak havoc in the region within one decade.
