Earthquakes in Chile
The country is distributed within a seismic zone, so it is normal to see tremors on several occasions during the day, although with different magnitudes. Mineduc explains that this phenomenon occurred because “Chile is located on the western edge of the South American plate, where the Nazca and Antarctic plates converge and produce subduction zones. Meanwhile, the Scotia plate slides horizontally relative to the South American plate, in a transcurrent plate boundary.

Google alert earthquake and earthquake
Google has developed an alert system that warns mobile devices with the Android operating system seconds before they start shaking. It contains a free alarm and message, with two versions. If the telluric movements exceed 5.0 magnitude, an alarm is sent to people, and a graphic alert on the screen, accompanied by a loud sound, which cannot be disconnected, and its purpose is that the people they protect themselves.
