I have family in Santiago, they said it was absolutely terrifying - and they've experienced many earthquakes before. But nothing like this - there's been something like 60 after shocks. You just don't know what the next one could do.

My thoughts to everyone caught in the strife.

even if they are not that powerful, you still dont want to get caught by one

bloke from Radio NZ was on BBC news a minute ago saying they are reviewing whats happening every 20 mins or so

Hope Chile can recover. Always wanted to go there. I think they have done pretty well considering its 8.8 on the richter scale. Looks like they had good building regulations in place

When i visted Wellington, NZ, i thought, if an 8.8 hit here this place would crumble. Wellington is always waiting for the 'big one'. All those houses on stilts in the hills would drop instantly and the fault line runs through the city centre at Lambton Quay where the government offices are

Hope it doesnt happen in NZ for hundreds of years...i'm planning on moving there!
hey, earthquakes in wellington aren't all bad. one nasty one is responsible for the basin reserve - i love that place.

It was said that Chiles buildings etc. were built to take earthquakes and that if this magnitude of a quake hit Haiti it would have been obliverated.

Chile is 44th and Haiti is 139, my numbers were a little off and backwards.

^thanks! They're fine as far as I know, just a bit shocked.

Thanks for this. I've been kinda interested in reading about this stuff every now and then since I found out Adelaide is the most earthquake prone capital in Australia and that we're apparently overdue for a damaging (6.0+) one. This is still much more an issue of fascination than fear to me, though.

just so everyone knows... I'm ok

now, JUST now, we're doing a national telethon, and we're heading, between entrepreneurs and regular people, to around to $30.000.000.000 pesos, that's 57 million dollars.

thanks for the prayers.

on Monday I'm going with a friend to one of the most devastated areas, Constitucion.

I'll show you pictures of a place that not only got the earthquake, also the tsunami

bye
