The doctor left the room to see if anyone fell or dog rammed the door or something, but none of the other coworkers felt everything shake , was limited in that only one exam room . The weather was a bit cloudy , so maybe the thunder that shook , but could have been a light rumor ? Perhaps only a part of the building that is sensitive.

    Chile has been hit by twenty eight major earthquakes , all with a force greater than 6.9 on the Richter scale . The strongest of these occurred in 1906 ( registering an estimated 8.4 on the Richter scale ) and in 1960 (reaching 8.75) . This earthquake occurred last May 22 , a day after another major earthquake measuring 7.25 on the Richter scale , and covered a large section of south-central Chile. It caused a tsunami that decimated several fishing villages in the south and up and down the coast sections of up to two meters. The clash between the plates of the earth's surface has generated the Andes , a mountain range that geologically young , in Chilean territory alone, includes about 620 volcanoes , many of them active . Nearly sixty of them had erupted in the twentieth century by the 1990s . More than half of Chile 's surface is of volcanic origin .
