The earthquake in Chile last year shifted the Earth’s axis of about 8 cm.

The magnitude of the earthquake epicenter is located 130 kilometers off the coast of Honshu, was 8.9. Tremors triggered a tsunami. Considered the most destructive earthquake in modern Japanese history. Number of victims of the disaster has already exceeded 300 people, and can, according to experts, make up to a thousand people.

The impact of the earthquake that hit Japan this morning shifted the earth’s rotation axis is nearly 10 inches.
