8.8 Earthquake Hits Chile

Recommended Posts

from what i'm seeing on cnn, its chile,peru and ecquador on tsnami warning. aftershocks are occuring already. the footage filtering into cnn is limited as of now, but the sun just came up awhile ago and communications and power are slowly getting back up.

there are conflicting reports on possible tsunamis, between warnings and advisories. at first the warning was just for chile,peru and ecquador. the reports on aftershocks are going from 2 or 3, to 10 to15. structurally the actual footage shows much less damage than in haiti, as they have building codes there, being its a earthquake zone.

^ Thank goodness! That was my first thought upon reading this. Thoughts are with those that are there and hoping they are safe.

Thanks for letting us know and so glad they are safe. My thoughts go out to the people of this region.

I have distant family in New Zealand and am hoping, wherever they are, that they are safe. The first waves of the Tsunami were meant to hit the NZ coast at 6am their time, so most people would've been asleep. It's 8am now and apparently the waves are getting bigger and they've just been put on full-scale Tsunami alert.

It sounds just like the 1964 Alaska quake. I wonder if it will hit Crescent City, CA?

I think there's a possible tsunami warning for the San Juan Islands (Washington State) that are just north of me.

Thanks, nine. Luckily (hopefully), no one was injured and damage was minimal. Appears that Hawaii was much the same, too. Thank God.

I´m still in Santiago, the city is coming back to its normal pace. But I tell you, it was scary. Really, really scary. :blink: :blink: Something I´ll remember for life. And something I dont expect ever to go through again. I thank you for your concern and i just wanted to let you know that i'm fine. Just can't wait to be back home, but i have no reason to complain. None at all. :)
