Horrible news and hope the loss of life isn't too drastic relatively speaking.

yes and no. depends also on the type of fault and type of rocks where the houses are build on. it was also close to a very highly populated area.

Giant tsunami roaming the Pacific, expected to hit Pascua in a few hours, then Hawai and perhaps even Australia...

Like Jelena said I'm fine, I actually live about 600 kilometers south from Concepcion and here was only a shake... I lived in Concepcion for 6 years when I studied there. Part of my family was there this weekend, I have a cousin that still study there and my uncles went to visit him.... affortunately thanks to friends and other people who know my family I just entered that they are OK... but the situation is critic. I have many friends and colleagues that live there and have no news about many of them.

For other part, Talca was another major damaged city, Alonso is from there and there's no news about him yet

I am a bit confused. At a depth of 35k, there was almost certainly no rupture of the seafloor, just a shaking. So there should not be a tsunami of any significance according to what I know about them.

Are all the precautions being taken just in case? Is the media overstating the case? And what happened in the Galapagos and Easter Island? It should have passed there by now.

Rick Sanchez on CNN will be so put out if there is no disaster in Hawaii.


Ha ha, he just put his finger on the Galapagos on a map and thought they were Hawaii. What an idiot.
