This BTN article was about the earthquakes in Haiti and Chile. Three facts I got from this article are in 2010 there were two earthquakes in two months one was in Haiti and one was in Chile, on the island of Haiti an estimated 250,000 people were killed and many more injured and in Chile he earthquake was 500 times more powerful but not as many people were killed. That is because Chile is in the ring of fire so they are prepared for earthquakes y making their buildings stronger and earthquakes are measured in what is called the Richter scale. Two understandings I got from this article are Haiti is a much poorer than Chile and the Richter scale is a very important thing that measures earthquakes. One question I have is what is the most powerful earthquake ever recorded?
