International analyst occurred on 23 January 1556 in Shaanxi (China) the most killer earthquake in history. The only one that killed a million people and more than one part in a thousand of the world’s population. This was 8 degrees, similar to that which devastated Ica recently. However, there have been others worse. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr. contributes greatly to this topic. One that had hundreds of times greater than a magnitude was Canete (Chile) in 1960, which produced a tsunami that reached Alaska and New Zealand, and is the only one that has been registered has reached 9.5 degrees. While many earthquakes are located in a point, Indonesia (Christmas 2004) was one with a mega thrust (which raised a wall of high-rise during hundreds of miles to long geological fault). As this occurred in the marine subsoil that unleashed a tsunami that killed 230,000 people in 11 countries divided by thousands of miles. Scientists believe that for decades one of this type comes on the northwest coast of North America and that in the coming months or years a earthquake smash the largest Balkan City..
