A major earthquake just hit the coast of Chile. It has since been upgraded to an 8.2. Tsunamis were generated and are hitting the coastline now.

Me too, 8.2 is a powerful one!

CNN is blogging live. Their homepage says the earthquake caused a small landslide, but no reports yet of damage or injuries. The blog does show a fire being put out.

8.2? Wow. And Californians were complaining about the 5.1 they got the other day. The Chile earthquake expended about 40,000 times more energy then the latest California one.

I'm posting the CNN homepage because the breaking news link only opens the blog page I posted earlier. There's been 9 significant aftershocks, one a 6.2. On TV they said there's been waves and landslides but still no reports of damage. Hawaii is on alert in case a tsunami wave would reach them.

The waves that hit were between one and two meters high, so not that bad.

Didn't the area have three hundred earthquakes in one week or something?

Am watching news, they are making no issue of it. 5 people have died, my heart goes to their families, so far casualties are very low.
Everyone in low lying areas have been evacuated, so hopefully no more casualties.

The news channels are basically showing all the deaths around the world because of war.........jeeze.....

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

And they've just had a new quake: 7.8 23km directly south of the city itself.
