Just to give you a quick idea of how big the scale is this time, according to the lastest analysis from earthquake specialists, it is approx. 100 times stronger than the earthquake in Haiti.

There are a lot of Chileno laziali as well as tens of thousands Chinese citizens in Chile, apart from these, all those people in Chile are suffering from this disaster. I hope all of you are out of danger right now!

Chilean President Michele Bachelet has declared a "state of catastrophe".

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(CNN) -- A massive magnitude 8.8 earthquake rocked Chile early Saturday, killing at least 78 people and triggering tsunami warnings for the entire Pacific basin.

Chilean President Michelle Bachelet said she expected the death toll to rise.

Numerous aftershocks -- including one of magnitude 6.9 -- were felt within hours of the initial quake, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The quake's epicenter was located off the coast of Maule, about 200 miles southwest of the capital of Santiago. It struck at 3:34 a.m. (1:34 a.m. ET), when most people were sleeping.

After experiencing a tiny earthquake for the first and perhaps only time in my life, these things really hit home now.

Thoughts are with the family and friends of the victims and let's hope the casualties are fewer than recent travesties.

Another sad event. Prayers are with the people of Chile, and around the world, affected by this tragedy.

Hope Nany and her family are okay, and Alek and friends are traveling around South America so hopefully they're in good health. I have a friend who lives in Santiago so I'm hoping he and his family are well.

Brisbane, Sydney & Melbourne had a 0.5mt rise in sea levels, with some waves of up to 2-3 metres (The norm is 0.5 to 1.5mt). Incredible, seeing that Chile is pretty much on the opposite ass end of the world to us, especially with so many reefs & islands in between that act as breakers.

I hope any Laziale there, as well as the citizens of Chile put up a brave fight & get through this.

On a brighter note Chile was better prepared for this scenario than Haiti was, and a greater catastrophe was averted with a quick and responsible action by the government and the army.

May the victims rest in peace, and the wounded get well soon.

That's great Ali, I had been checking her Facebook to see if she was posting.

Apparently the quake has shifted the Earth's axis by 8cm and days are now 1 nano-second shorter.

Good to hear Nany and her family are all alright. I also received news that my friend and his family, who all live in Santiago, are all okay as well.
