Chile Earthquake Maps

On Saturday, February 27 at 6:34:14 UTC, a magnitude 8.8 earthquake occurred near Maule, Chile. News is just starting to come in so not sure how much damage there will be from this earthquake.

I will start working on a collection of map and earthquake data overlays for Google Earth.  I will continue to add new maps as I find them in the coming days.  If you know of any other good maps or data related to the Chile Earthquake that would be good to add this collection, please post a comment.

Just click on the button below to access all of the maps and data.  A list of the data is included in the table below, along with a link to the source.
