Mi cousin is living there in Santiago. They got hit by an 8.8 quake.
They live in a newish apartment that withstood the quake.
I just got off the phone, my grandmother told me that they are ok, but as of now there's no phones, no power or gas and they are checking the structural damage in the buildings.
At 3.30 AM they heard the windows breaking, their daughter woke up crying (the baby slept through it all) the appliances and everything loose fell, and even thier bead moved around.
The building being new was quake proof, but they are pretty scared since the ground still moves every now and then.
Seems highways collapsed, pretty big earthquake.
Just another example guys of why preparedness is so important and how having the basics covers most of these events.
Worst case scenario: My cousin can just move back to Argentina. She still has her apartment and can stay in my aunt's house in the meantime.
Plan B location away from the mess beats 100 fully stocked forts all day.
