According to reports, a Tsunami wipped out several villages throughout the South Pacific. Unfortunately at this time, the death toll is unknown. It started with a massive 8.0 magnitude earthquake that struck 120 miles off Samoa around 7am Tuesday morning. Warnings have been issued for the West Coast of America as a precaution, though no danger is expected.
As a comparison, the earthquake that literally shoke the world on December 26, 2004, was a magnitude 9.2 earthquake, which was the 2nd largest quake ever recorded by a seismograh and lastest the longest duration of almost 10 minutes. The entire planet vibrated, literally!
Let’s just all pray this is in no way a similar situation as the one the world dealt with in 2004.
