Update VIDEOs-Massive 8.2 Earthquake & Tsunami Hits Chile

SANTIAGO, Chile — An 8.2-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of northern Chile on Tuesday night, forcing a massive evacuation along the country’s long coastline. At least five people were reported to have died.
The first waves of a tsunami hit several cities along the coast, which extends 2,653 miles.

The epicenter of the earthquake was in waters 53 miles southwest of Cuya, a small town in Arica Province near the border with Peru. The deaths — four men and one woman, all in the city of Iquique — were the result of heart attacks or crushing, Interior Minister Rodrigo Peñailillo said. At least three people in Iquique, which has a population of about 182,000, were also reported injured.

The national emergency service ordered the immediate evacuation of all coastal areas throughout the country, including Easter Island and the archipelago of Juan Fernández.

More waves were expected throughout the night, with the highest expected to reach eight feet, near Iquique, Chilean officials said. According to a Reuters report, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said the coasts of Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua were also at risk, and an advisory was issued for Hawaii, with strong currents expected to reach there around 9:24 a.m. Eastern time Wednesday, although no flooding was expected.

“We are evaluating minute by minute the variations in tide, and ask the population to remain informed,” Mr. Peñailillo said, emphasizing that the tsunami warning would last for several hours.

In the hours after the earthquake, more than 300 female prisoners escaped during the evacuation of a prison in Iquique, the authorities said. More than a dozen of the inmates were recaptured, according to the police.

The government said it was sending more than 100 special forces personnel and military troops to coordinate with the security forces in Iquique, Mr. Peñailillo added.

Electricity failures occurred across most of Arica, a port city of about 200,000 people, and some adobe homes crumbled in the quake, Chilean news media reported. Mining companies in northern Chile did not immediately report damage to their installations.

No looting was reported, said Ricardo Toro, the director of the national emergency service.

Chile lies in one of the world’s most earthquake-prone zones. An 8.8-magnitude earthquake in 2010 off the coast of central Chile left at least 525 people dead. In 1960, a 9.5-magnitude earthquake, thought to be the largest of the 20th century, hit near Chile’s coast near the city of Valdivia; the disaster left about 1,600 people dead, largely from a tsunami caused by the earthquake.

About 300 earthquakes of varying magnitude have shaken Chile’s northern coast in several weeks, delivering an unusual surge in seismic activityin the region. Since the 2010 earthquake, Chilean authorities have sought to improve evacuation procedures.

The evacuations on Tuesday night seemed to proceed in a calm and orderly fashion. Since 2010, there have been several tsunami emergency drills along the coast, so people are much more prepared and aware of what they have to do.

Update re: VIDEOs-Massive 8.2 Earthquake & Tsunami Hits Chile

Chile Hit by Tsunami: At least Five Dead and 300 Female Prisoners Escape as Huge Waves Triggered by 8.2-Magnitude Quake Force Evacuations along Country's Entire Coast

  • Quake struck at 8.46pm (00.46BST) on Tuesday in the Pacific Ocean
  • Chilean officials say five people killed and many others seriously injured
  • Coastal areas evacuated by authorities immediately after tremor struck
  • 300 women inmates escape jail in city of Iquique near quake's epicentre




By Daily Mail UK, UPDATED: 2 April 2014

Chile has declared a state of emergency after a magnitude-8.2 earthquake struck off its northern coast, setting off a tsunami that forced evacuations across the country.

Five people were crushed to death or suffered fatal heart attacks, a remarkably low toll for such a powerful shift in the Earth's crust.
The extent of damage has not yet been fully assessed, President Michelle Bachelet said, but she sent a military plane with 100 anti-riot police to join 300 soldiers deployed to prevent looting and round-up escaped prisoners.
The shaking caused landslides that blocked roads, knocked out power for thousands, damaged an airport and provoked fires that destroyed several businesses.

About 300 inmates escaped from a women's prison in the city of Iquique.
Around 40 of the women were soon recaptured after Chile's military sent a planeload of special forces to the area, the country's investigative police said.
In Arica, another city close to the quake's offshore epicentre, hospitals treated minor injuries, and some homes made of adobe were destroyed, authorities said.

Interior minister Rodrigo Penailillo announced the five deaths.
Ms Bachelet's government extended its tsunami warnings for northern-most Chile long after they were lifted elsewhere.

Terror: Thousands pour into the streets after tremors rocked their homes in the port city of Anto***asta



Mandatory evacuation orders remained in effect until nearly dawn for coastal areas north of Antofogasta, a decision backed by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre in Hawaii.
Geophysicist Gerard Fryer said: 'We regard the coast line of Chile as still dangerous, so we're maintaining the warning.'
Ms Bachelet, who just returned to the presidency three weeks ago, spoke well after midnight, five hours after the quake struck at 8.46pm local time yesterday (00.46am BST today).

It was not lost on many Chileans that the last time she presided over a major quake, days before the end of her 2006-10 term, her emergency preparedness office prematurely waved off a tsunami danger.

Most of the 500 dead from that magnitude-8.8 tremor survived the shaking, only to be caught in killer waves
in a disaster that destroyed 220,000 homes and washed away large parts of many coastal communities.


'The country has done a good job of confronting the emergency. I call on everyone to stay calm and follow the authorities' instructions,' she tweeted after the latest quake.
When she finally addressed the nation, she said Mr Penailillo would monitor the tsunami threat throughout the night and co-ordinate the emergency response.

'Classes have been suspended, and we will be able to know the extent of the damage in the light of day,' she added.
The tsunami warning centre cancelled tsunami watches for areas other than northern Chile and southern Peru.

Far reaching: The effects of the powerful quake were noted by a seismic station in Alaska

The only US impact might be higher waves for Hawaii's swimmers and surfers, it said.
The US Geological Survey initially reported the quake at 8.0, but later upgraded the magnitude of the quake that struck 61 miles north west of Iquique.

More than 20 significant aftershocks followed, including a 6.2 tremor. More aftershocks and even a larger quake could not be ruled out, said seismologist Mario Pardo at the University of Chile.
The quake was so strong that the shaking experienced in Bolivia's capital about 290 miles away was the equivalent of a 4.5-magnitude tremor, authorities there said.

Frightened residents in some towns posted videos and pictures on Twitter as they spilled out of their homes following the quake to head for safer areas inland.
One woman, Javiera Mora Araya, who lives in the Chilean coastal city of Chañaral tweeted an image of her neighbours fleeing their homes and heading into the streets after the tsunami warning was issued.

Lengthy queues of traffic quickly formed as families headed inland, while others in Iquique took refuge in the city's stadium.

No major injuries: There were no immediate reports of casualties or major damage on shore, but warnings for people to flee to higher ground and advisories were issued for coastal areas up South and Central America's huge Pacific coast

Some roads in northern Chile were blocked by landslides, only exacerbating the jams among people leaving the coast. But coastal residents remained calm as they head inland while waves measuring almost 2 meters (6 1/2 feet) struck their cities.

As well as damaged homes, pictures emerged of a burning restaurant and a partially destroyed church.
Chile is one of the world's most earthquake-prone countries because just off the coast, the Nazca tectonic plate plunges beneath the South American plate, pushing the towering Andes to ever-higher altitudes.
The latest activity began with a strong magnitude-6.7 quake on March 16 that caused more than 100,000 people to briefly evacuate low-lying areas.

Hundreds of smaller quakes followed in the weeks since, keeping people on edge as scientists said there was no way to tell if the unusual string of tremors was a harbinger of an impending disaster.


WHEN THE EARTH MOVED:
WHY THE CHILEAN COAST IS PARTICULARLY VULNERABLE TO EARTHQUAKES


The largest earthquake recorded in modern times hit off the coast of Chile on May 22, 1960, and had a magnitude of 9.5
It killed around 1,655 people, injured 3,000, left 2million homeless and caused half a billion dollars worth of damage.
Tsunami waves reached heights of 38ft (11.5m) and carried the remains of shattered homes as far as two miles inland.
The earthquake was thought to have triggered an eruption two days later of Volcan Puyehue, which raged for several weeks sending steam and ash four miles into the air.

A magnitude-8.8 quake and ensuing tsunami in central Chile in 2010 killed more than 500 people, destroyed 220,000 homes, and washed away docks, riverfronts and seaside resorts.


The region is particularly vulnerable to earthquakes as it sits on the boundary between the Nazca plate and South America plate in the earth’s crust.
