Just now listening to reports of a major Chilean earthquake, many times stronger than the one to hit Haiti.

Tsunami has been triggered. :(

No. :cry2:

Sirens going off in Hawaii now... tsunami sirens. They know one is out there, but they don't know how big it is or what damage it will do... yet. It's already hit some smaller islands.

Fires in Chile, but the buildings are better constructed to withstand a 'quake unlike Haiti.

I just saw news reports of people breaking in to supermarkets for food and water for their families.....the police, they stood back and let them, thank goodness.

700 lives lost in Chile and looting is going on. People have no food or water so they are taking it. Police are using water cannons and tear gas to clear crowds. (All from a local news report). :(
