┐Estas bien? Estuvo muy feo el terremoto que sufrieron, me recordo al que tuvimos en la Ciudad de Mexico en el '85.

Ojala tu y los tuyos se encuentren bien, haznos saber como estan las cosas por alla.

How are the cafe patrons doing after that jolt? Not only are the people who were near the earthquake okay but are the folks who have to deal with the fallout getting by? Isn't Digitalboy living on Oahu now? I have a number of friends out there on the islands who are probably running for higher ground right now so I hope he's not among them. Stay safe everyone.

In my zone the shake was for about 6.x in strenght. It was 8.x in some zones, and it seems that tsunamis have swallowed up some towns (again).

Chile is actually quite prone to big quakes like these, and this is also the second big scale quake that I have lived through (but at least for this one I didn't have to spend the night sleeping in pijamas outside an hospital). That means that there are more or less good measures against quakes, and most buildings can withstand things without falling down.

Damage wise, I haven't seen any big disaster outside small fires within my vicinity, but it seems that there are parts of the city that had it worse : we are following emergency procedures, where electricity and phone lines where cut off (to keep loose cables from killing people), and things like these. And in all, it wasn't that bad for me.

Also, Ironically speaking, I was watching Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 while it happened (it was conspiracy!).

Seriously, I'm glad you're ok, I know firsthand how traumatic a huge earthquake can be, specially if you're in the middle of demolished buildings and corpses lying around...

Who else is from Chile? Karasu I think?

There was an alarm around here, about a possible Tsunami hitting my town, it worries me because I live practically in front of the Pacific.

I was reading that there it was a Tsunami due to a Haiti quake some time ago, this one should be slightly smaller than it, so whatever you did there should work just fine.

Also, I live next to boarding houses and it was almost funny seeing foreign tourist running away for their lives, rushing to the airport just to find that the airport tracks have been ruined.

I was reading that Hiroshima bomb was more or less 5.7 strength wise in the Richter scale measure.

Oh, and of course, if the saying was "good guy goes (dies) first", them I'm practically immortal.

Yes, yes he is. The worst part I live within a couple miles of the beach which means I live in the low elevation area. A couple of hours after I posted the message to IronD in the anime thread, I received a phone call about the tsunami. Within the hours of posting the message and receiving the call, I had a couple of shots of cognac and four beers in me. My employer tried to call me into work, they were upset that I was drinking before a crisis. HA! Fuck them and their horse.

Thanks for anyone's and everyone's concern about South America and the Pacific.

Yeah, I'm definitely glad to hear that everyone is okay. Also, that Toxico can maintain his unique brand of humor even during a crisis.

I arrive after the battle, but I'm glad to hear that everyone is OK AND that I learned about the earthquake while reading you were OK, so I didn't waste energy worrying for you bunch of useless drama queens. Next time try to be a little more interesting, please.

Also, I hope your family and friends aren't too badly hurt, and that you didn't lose anything precious or drinkable in the process.

Thank you for destroying my mental image of yourself having joined a "Tsunami, please sink England" movement, where you were doing strange ritual dances from a safe distance.

My biggest personal tragedy was that for about 600 coins valued in about 10$ were knocked down, and it seems that they would take several generations of family members looking to be completely found.
