Chilean Earthquake

According to research using GPS technology, parts of Chile moved 3 metres due to the recent earthquake. If that does not shock you, measure out 3 metres on your living room floor and picture the ground shifting that much in a very short time period.

For those of you still using traditional British measurement methods, 3 metres is almost 10 feet.
