This is scary!

A massive earthquake struck off the coast of Central Chile on Wednesday, with a magnitude of 8.3!

The quake was so powerful that officials issued a tsunami watch — and are now saying that "widespread hazardous tsunami waves are possible."

According to the National Weather Service, the waves pose the most danger to the coasts of Chile and Peru.

The NWS also said it was monitoring the situation to see if Hawaii and up and down the west coast of the Americas could be impacted, saying:

"A tsunami may have been generated by this earthquake that could be destructive on coastal areas even far from the epicenter. An investigation is underway to determine if there is a tsunami threat to Hawaii."

No word on the investigation yet, or how many casualties came from the earthquake or its aftershocks.

Our heart goes out to everyone affected by this natural disaster.
