In a world where earthquakes happen every day, the news is always changing.
And it can be hard to keep up with the latest news when the news cycle is constantly changing.
That’s why the folks at the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) put together this handy calendar of the day’s biggest earthquakes to help you keep up.
They hope that by keeping you informed, the next time you feel a quake you know about, you’ll be ready to evacuate before it happens.
The most recent earthquake was on February 4, 2018, when an 8.3-magnitude quake struck in the Chilean province of Andean.
The quake killed at least 23 people, injured more than 300, and left more than 1,300 people without power.
It was the largest quake in Chile’s history, and the strongest earthquake ever recorded.
The next big quake will probably be a magnitude 7 or higher.
That means it could cause serious damage or even kill people, so it’s best to leave the house or go somewhere where you won’t be hurt by the quake.
This is why it’s important to wear sturdy footwear, a helmet, and a mask.
If you are wearing a mask, take extra precautions so you don’t fall or get caught in a collapsed building.
