I finally got my phone/mobile/internet service back.
It's a huge mess here in Chile. This is the 5th most powerful earthquake in the history of the world.
Hopefully for us, the epicenter wasn't near Santiago, the capital and biggest city here, but it was in the second most important city in Chile, Concepción, that's about 700 kms away on the south, but anyway we could feel it really strong here (where I live is about 40 kms south from Santiago.
For you to make an idea, we have to different words for when the land quakes: one is like a minor earthquake which is any quake below 7 Rigster degrees and any quake over 7 degrees it's a major earthquake. We are used to minor quakes every now and then but a major one usually occurs every 15-20 years. The one we had now was of 8.8 degrees (the biggest ever in the world was of 9.5, in Valdivia, Chile) so you can imagine this a huge disaster. In Santiago it was about 7.5 degrees.
It was quite "fun" how it got me. I was paying drums while the bassist of my band was playing "Us and Them" on the guitar, all this in the house we use for our music sessions. Suddenly a friend said "hey, it's quaking". We stopped playing, I stood up, and after about 10 seconds we realized this was big we got out of the house, and we could feel like we were surfing on the porch.
Well, thank you for worrying.
What's all the world saying about this, by the way?

MAAAAAANNNNNNN!!! I have never been so happy to see a guy's posting on a site before! The news (and the pictures) indicated you were at ground-zero for this thing, and all I could see was devastation....I must confess you were on my mind quite a bit this past weekend (I DID learn quite a bit about your area because I did some research). Anyway, it is unbelieveably good to know you're okay....The world is saying you guys are more accustomed to massive earthquakes than (for example Haiti), and thus your buildings are built to a different code, and thus, your country had less fatalities, even though the earthquake itself was much more massive than the one that recently struck Haiti. Reporters are saying how impressed they are with how efficiently your rescue workers react to such crisis. The combination of quake and tsunami in the coastal regions created a double wallop for them. Looting has been government-sanctioned in some areas, because of the need of the people. Pictures especially of the Concepci'on area showed massive destruction, but I also saw pictures that were described as Santiago that showed massive destruction as well (that was the part that had me worried)...ANYWAY....GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU, BRO!!!!

Surfing on the porch...what an incredible thing to have experienced.
Very glad your back on line, so your house and around where you live are all still 'standing'?
I've heard the same thing, that you guys were much better prepared for quakes than Haiti.
All the best over there getting things back on track.

Yeah, we have a kind of "quakes culture".
I must say, although we are supposed to build structures to resist this earthquakes, there were a few new building that just collapsed. After the earthquake in the year 1985 there's a regulation that says that any construction must be made to stand after an event like this but yet we can see many people dead for that. There will be a bunch of engineers lynched for this cause.
My house didn't suffer any damage at all. Few things just felt down, but nothing big.
