I don't know if you already heard about it, but today at about 3:30 in the morning, there was an earthquake in Chile. It had a magnitude of 8.8. Actually it was much more intense than Haiti's earthquake, but Chile is well prepared for this things, since it's in the border of the South American tectonic plate, so buildings are constructed thinking of the earth movements. Still, there have been deaths. Bridges, churches, houses have been destroyed.
Fortunately, nobody I know was injured and in my house there were no major damages. Some weak furniture fell off (it actually was full of heavy stuff, like detergent, fabric softener, etc), paintings and photos which were hanging on the wall (there was one, actually that fell from the third floor to the second, and no one knows how ö), and as you can see, all the wine glasses from the cupboard.
So, well, this was the first severe earthquake I have been in, and it was really scary. In fact, after if was over (it lasted more than 2min), I was shaking, even though I was far more calm, my body wasn't. But now, I'm fine, everyone's I know is fine, even my dog :)
Now, it's 12:40 and there are still aftershocks every now and then, but really low.+
That's all, my dear blue people.
