This earthquake, and the resulting tsunamis, killed between 2,000 to 6,000 people. That rupture generated an earthquake registering 9.5 on the moment magnitude scale. The Richter Scale is logarithmic, meaning it goes up by levels of ten, so a magnitude 10 earthquake is 10 times larger than a magnitude 9.
