This morning around 6am, there was a small shake that lasted about 30 seconds. I tried to look up the seismic record for it but could not find anything. It was weak but it did wake me up with the sounds of things shaking around.

Then, just now, shortly before midnight, things shook quite a bit, apparently from a 5.4 magnitude quake that hit near Valparaiso. Still nothing fell off the shelves and it was a more vertical bouncing, but I could hear it coming which was kind of creepy. As I type this I am still feeling little “waterbed” movements as things settle down.

Earthquake season is open in Chile!
