Two major earthquakes hours apart on opposite sides of the earth!

Earthquakes!An 8.8 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Chile about 3:00 in the morning on February 27, just hours after a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck the Ryukyu Islands, Japan. The quake that hit and devastated sections of Haiti on January 12 was also a 7.0 magnitude. To help children understand what earthquakes are and what they can do, we are providing free access to Pandas’ Earthquake Escape eBook, available in both English and Spanish. www.SylvanDellPublishing.com.
