Hi everybody,

It doesn't look good. Santiago is without power and the first images are seeping through via CNN. It's still night time there and the poor quality images show roads with debris scattered about.

The experts still don't know where the epicenter of the earthquake is.

I'll give more info when I have it...

Best regards,

Steve

Hi everybody,

The epicenter is around the Concepción area. There is a tidal wave heading north with warnings given to Peru and Equador.

Bridges have collapsed including the principal bridge that links the north and south of Chile.

More news as I get it....

Best regards,

Steve

They got hit off the coast of Japan too 7.0 off the coast is nothing to sneeze at, and there was a 6.0 and a 5.4 quake in Mindanao, Phillipines. As a matter of fact that entire area of the Ring of Fire was extremely active today producing several 5.0-4.0 size quakes

The quake hit 200 miles (325 kilometers) southwest of the capital, Santiago, and at a depth of 22 miles (35 kilometers) at 3:34 a.m. (0634 GMT; 1:34 a.m. EST), the U.S. Geological Survey reported. Its epicenter was just 70 miles (115 kilometers) from Concepcion, Chile's second-largest city, where more than 200,000 people live along the Bio Bio river, and 60 miles from the ski town of Chillan, a gateway to Andean ski resorts that was destroyed in a 1939 earthquake.

An Associated Press Television News cameraman said some buildings collapsed in Santiago and power was out in parts of the city. With phone lines down, confirmation of damage was difficult elsewhere, especially further south toward the epicenter. The quake was felt in Argentina as well.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a warning for Chile and Peru, and a less-urgent tsunami watch for Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica and Antarctica.

"Sea level readings indicate a tsunami was generated. It may have been destructive along coasts near the earthquake epicenter and could also be a threat to more distant coasts," the center said.

The U.S. west coast tsunami warning center said it did not expect a tsunami along the west of the U.S. or Canada but was continuing to monitor the situation.

Hi Everybody,

There is a tsunami warning also to Hawaaii. It could reach in around two or three hours.

The earthquake lasted for almost a minute, which is a long time and was so powerful they felt it in Buenos Aires in Argentina.

Six people confirmed dead in Santiago, over three hundred kilometers from the epicenter. It's still early days.

Best regards,

Steve

HAARP maybe? or perhaps the haiti earthquake triggered this one, or maybe it's a complete coincidence. very sad anyway. CNN just said 52 comfirmed dead so far, lets hope it stays low but from the sound of it I don't think it will.

My brother-in-law lives in Santiago. We haven't had a chance to communicate with him yet. I do pray that him, his girlfriend and all people in Chile are doing better that what we see and would see in the news.

I will post status of Santiago when I hear from him.

New update - over 78 dead so far; Easter Island has already been evacuated. Tsunami may hit Australia on Sunday morning.

Much love and healing light to all affected - and all those who are not.

Tokyo - The Japan Meteorological Agency said it was looking into whether a tsunami generated by Saturday's earthquake in Chile could reach the Japanese coast. If it does, a wave around 1 metre high would probably hit at around 1 pm local time on Sunday, the meteorological agency said.
