“The last massive earthquake to hit the Queen Charlotte Islands was in August 1949, at a magnitude of 8.1. The shaking was so intense that cows tipped over in fields. In Terrace, cars bounced around and windows shattered.
The 1949 earthquake was “1,000 times stronger” than Tuesday’s quake, Mazzotti said.”
Scary stuff indeed. Luckily we don’t get big earthquakes around Cornwall.
