    I live in Santiago on a 17th floor.
    Holy shit, I was sleeping at 3.35 in the morning and 2 seconds later it felt as though the building was coming down from the shaking.
    Around 6 in the morning I came back to my appartment, and the goddamn aftershocks kept me with one eye open.
    Scary crap.
    Thanks for the coverage, Andy.

    Wow. 8.8 is *huge*, and one and a half minutes is a REALLY long time for an earthquake to last! Chlieans are lucky their buildings are built to withstand the shaking. I have a feeling you are going to be just fine Topher, but all the same, best of luck to you.

    i was on a disco with a lot of people when the earthquake happened ,happily people doesnt get panic and we went out with order
    but my boyfriend was worried about his family he had to walk to his home, on the very dark night , without cell phones and no lights on streets i was so scare for him.
    he , me and our families are fine , but people are dead or without their houses
    but people are peacefully

    Hey, good thing there are other chileans reading this blog! :)
    And it’s been the most exhausting day — at least 50 aftershocks and some of them strong enough to make loud structural noise, which scares the crap out of me. And I feel so dizzy bc the swinging just won’t stop!
    Thanks so much you guys for the good wishes!
