Major quake rattles Chile

Hope all our Chilean friends out there are ok.


SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) -- A major earthquake rocked a large area of northern Chile on Wednesday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake was felt strongly in the capital, Santiago. The U.S. Geological Survey calculated the quake's magnitude at 7.7.

It struck at 10:40 ET a.m. and was centered 780 miles (1,260 kilometers) north of Santiago, or 25 miles (40 kilometers) east-southeast of Tocopilla, Chile, the USGS said.

The USGS said it occurred 38 miles (61 kilometers) beneath the surface.

"It was horribly strong. It was very long and there was a lot of underground noise," said Andrea Riveros, spokeswoman for Park hotel in Calama, 60 miles (100 kilometers) east-southeast of the quake's center.

She said the quake knocked out power to the hotel, but caused no damage. She said she did not know what had happened in town.

To the Chileans here on MTF Stay safe.

Re: Major quake rattles Chile

I live in the "little" north, here the quake didn't produced a big effect, but in the "big" north, in cities like Arica, Antofagasta, Iquique and Calama... I hope PoderShileno (he lives in Arica), josemalito (not a big poster but he lives in Copiapó) are okay, .

Re: Major quake rattles Chile

There are 2 deaths and about 100 people hurt.
I live in the central-south so no problem for me, but I'm kind of worried for the people in the north. I hope They're ok. There's still a lot that is not known! .

That's right . but sadly the quake's power affected huge population zones, like Antofagasta [300.000+], Calama [120.000+] and many little towns which exist since the "Saltpeter fever".

Besides the epicenter wasn't in the high mountain, actually it was 70 kms far the sea, where the highway 5 is at.

Then again, guys...not to be insensitive, but...you play a world sport.

Gotta "go with the flow."

Gotta "roll with the punches..."

Gotta...live the life. Love to live...live life while others are suffering...
