Now on the TV they are calling it just high tide wave, but ..... it is the Bachelet administration so I would give this a few hours to be sure.

well, looks like overall fairly minor damage for a 7.6 so far.

I am sure there are more than a few people with Christmas hangovers across southern chile that will not agree.

Sounds like you all had a good shaking for Christmas :-D Chile seems to have got off lightly compared to the same magnitude (well, 7.8 ) quake here in Ecuador in April.

Just a couple weeks ago, while driving around Puerto Montt, I was joking that the only thing that could fix Puerto Montt was a Tsunami. Perhaps one day it will. I just did not mean on Christmas morning.

It is one of the most nasty, ugly, examples of uncontrolled urban sprawl in southern Chile, that get's worse every year; but, built on one of the most beautiful bays in the country. If you turn your back to the city, so that all you see is the bay, it is breath taking. You turn around, and it is just this shocking eye-pollution of a mess of rotting tin built up the hillside.

They keep trying to fix things, but the socialist powers that be in Puerto Montt have absolutely no sense of organization nor design.

Perhaps this scare will motivate them to get some of the urban sprawl off the beach. Like, who builds the largest bus station in southern Chile, on the beach. Then covers it in what basically looks like bathroom tile. All sitting at the prime entrance to the city as you come down the hill that would look out over the bay, if the ugly bus station was not blocking your view.

Nail hit on head. Couldn't agree more.

I just came across the following email in my inbox from the U.S. embassy.

What time do you think it arrived?

2:12 p.m. about 45 mins after everyone was scheduled to be dead.

U.S. Embassy

Santiago, Chile



Security Message for U.S. Citizens

December 25, 2016





This Message is to alert U.S. citizens residing and traveling in the southern coastal regions of Araucania, Los Rios, Los Lagos, and Aysen that the Chilean National Emergency Agency, ONEMI, has issued a precautionary tsunami warning for these areas as a result of the 7.6 magnitude earthquake near Port Melinka. People in the impacted areas are being asked to evacuate to higher ground and to avoid the coastal areas. Aftershocks are expected according to local Chilean authorities.



Tsunamis can be highly destructive and citizens are advised to follow all evacuation procedures. All U.S. citizens are encouraged to closely monitor the news, including ONEMI’s website. Once you are in a safe place, please contact your loved ones to let them know that you are okay.

The U.S. Embassy in Santiago is located at Andres Bello 2800, Las Condes, Santiago and is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm by appointment only for routine services.

I also seen the photos from the regional ONEMI meeting on the morning of the quake that were published in the local paper. You have never seen such a bunch of drawn out, somber faces. Not concerned for the potential disaster unfolding, but clearly everyone was hung-over. Everyone in that room was really, really suffering.

I truly hope that Trump scrape the US Embassy in Santiago for good. I have never seen a more useless representation of a country as such. They don't answer questions unless you make an appointment and if you do it has to be to their convenience or you are.....( fill in the blank). They're more guarded that the Treasury but w/o the treasures..........what a waste!
