    The Iquique earthquake occurred at local time on 9 May ( on 10 May UTC).It had a magnitude of on the surface wave magnitude scale. [1] Other estimates of its magnitude have been as high as [2] It had a maximum intensity of XI (Extreme) on the Mercalli intensity scale [3] and triggered a devastating tsunami.A total of 2, people died, mainly in Peru and what is now.   The Latest on Peru earthquake (all times local) a.m.A U.S. agency has issued a tsunami threat message for parts of Peru and Chile's coastlines after a powerful Pacific Tsunami Warning Center says that "hazardous tsunami waves are forecast for some.

Title: Tsunamis in Peru-Chile: Authors: Lockridge, P. Publication: Boulder, CO: National Geophysical Data Center (NOAA), |c Publication Date: 00/   This study aims to understand better the characteristics of the tsunamis triggered along the Peru–Chile Trench.

We investigate the tsunamis induced by the Mw Illapel, the Mw Iquique and the Mw Maule Chilean earthquakes that happened on September 16th,April 1st, and February 27th,by: for assessing and modelling tsunamis in Peru and the northern Chile could also be applied to simulate tsunamis at other sites around the world.

Key words: Numerical modelling, natural hazards, risk assessment, tsunami, seismic waves, tsunamigenic earthquakes, run-up, port development, Peru, Chile. On 16 Augustan earthquake with a magnitude estimated at struck the Peru–Chile Trench. A resulting tsunami struck the port of Arica, then part of Peru, killing an.

It occurred on the subduction zone plate boundary at the Peru - Chile Trench where the oceanic Nazca Plate subducts beneath the continental South American Plate. The two plates are converging at a rate of 80 mm per year.

The epicentre was just 70 miles ( kilometres) from Concepcion, Chile's second-largest city. There is a very narrow seismic band ( km wide) between the Andes mountain range and the Peru-Chile Trench.

Major differences is seismicity, in morphology of the coast and in potential for generation of large tsunamis exist along the entire coastline of Chile. Tsunami Characteristics Along the Peru–Chile Trench: Analysis of the Mw Illapel, the Mw Iquique and the Mw Maule Tsunamis in the Near-field.

Pages Omira, R. (et al.). tsunami is also the only tsunami within living memory of NSW residents which had significant impacts, making it the most suitable event to investigate because of the potential for acquiring additional data from personal observations.

The Chilean Tsunami of 23rd May The tsunami was caused by a Mw earthquake which occurred at UTC on theFile Size: KB. Based directly on tsunami run-up data, we estimate tsunami wave heights of 13 m for a year return period and 25 m for a year return period. According to the seismic gap theory, we can expect that the next strong earthquake and tsunami will occur between 19 and 28 S in the vicinity of northern Chile.

Based directly on tsunami run-up data, we estimate tsunami wave heights of 13 m for a year return period and 25 m for a year return period. According to the “seismic gap” theory, we can expect that the next strong earthquake and tsunami will occur between 19 and 28° S in the vicinity of northern by:   It lacks a reported tsunami, even though tsunamis from central Chile in and were noted locally 14 and in Ja The earthquake damaged towns along the central third of.

Other major earthquakes since the s include: -- An magnitude earthquake caused extensive damage to Lima, Callao, and Ica. The resultant tsunami destroyed the port of Pisco. Total fatalities numbered about 5, -- The Lima-Callao earthquake Author: Tony Dunnell.

A powerful magnitude earthquake has struck the coast of southern Peru, leaving one person dead and several dozen injured. Authorities rolled back earlier statements saying a second person had died and 17 people were missing in a mine, suggesting the human toll of the quake may not be as drastic as previously feared.

Along the Peru-Chile coast the estimated lost of life from the tsunami ranged from to people and the - was measured as high as 25m. A city along the western coast of the United States which received notable run-up was Crescent City, California, where the run-up reached m and the first wave arrived hrs after the tsunami was.

1. Introduction [2] An Mw earthquake ruptured a ‐km fault along the Peru‐Chile Trench on Febru at am local time ( UTC). Figure 1a shows the epicenter and rupture area as well as the locations of four DART buoys in the eastern Pacific that recorded distinct signals of the resulting tsunami.

The most severe impacts occurred along the coastline from San Cited by: Arica Tsunami: On Aug. 16,an magnitude earthquake hit the Peru-Chile Trench off the southern coast of Peru, turning the city of Arica into rubble.

Following the earthquake, a massive trans-Pacific tsunami formed and came crashing into Arica. The tsunami’s foot waves hit two American ships, killing all but two crewmembers.

The Peru–Chile Trench, also known as the Atacama Trench, is an oceanic trench in the eastern Pacific Ocean, about kilometres ( mi) off the coast of Peru and Chile. It reaches a maximum depth of 8, m (26, ft) below sea level in Richards Deep and is approximately 5, km (3, mi) long; its mean width is 64 km (40 mi) and it covers an expanse of somekm 2 (, sq.

Most of the tsunami-related deaths in Japan occurred in the northeast Sanriku region of Honshu. The Chilean coast was devastated by a tsunami from Mocha Island (38° S) to Aysén Region (45° S).

Across southern Chile, the tsunami caused huge loss of life, damage Magnitude: Mw. From the tsunami, these estimates from the entire Peru-Chile coastline ranged from to 2, people with somewhere between and deaths on Isla Chiloe (which was the hardest hit location).

The work of Mancilla and Mardones () also mimics the uncertainty in numbers of deaths due to the tsunami and by: 6. Since the CE and Chilean tsunamis, it is documented that extreme tsunamis originating from the Peru-Chile subduction zone can have a strong impact on coasts as far as ∼17, km away in Japan (Cisternas et al.,Lander and Lockridge, ).

The Tsunami that took place after the initial quake was caused by a portion of seabed rupturing upwards, and displacing a large portion of the water being displaced. This water traveled at miles, at 8 feet tall, to the Chilean and Peruvian coast.

Early viewers of the tsunami later reported waves being up.
