MAP OF THE DAY: Here's Where Brazil Just Got Hit By A 6.5 Magnitude Earthquake

Brazil just got rocked by a 6.5 magnitude earthquake in the northwest portion of the country. In contrast, the highly destructive Chilean earthquake of February had a magnitude of 8.8.

The earthquake hit the state of Acre, which is 1687 miles from the country’s capital of Brasilia.

Acre produced only 0.2% of the Brazilian economy in 2005, so from an economic standpoint, this shouldn’t be a significant negative.
