The massive 8.8 magnitude earthquake that rocked Chile Saturday, Feb. 27, registered loud and clear at Bucknell University's seismic station in Carnegie Hall. As noted in the graph, it took about 12 minutes for the waves to reach Lewisburg, Pa., from the South American country. No Bucknell study abroad students are in Chile this semester, according to the Office on International Education.
