It was much stronger than the Haiti quake. 8.8 vs. 7.0. The
(relatively) good news is that Chile was much better prepared for such
a quake. Reported death tolls are under 150, and the worst damage is
in the south of the country, away from Santiago, where Suey lives.
Though every death is a tragedy, it could have been far, *far* worse.
A lot of power and phone lines are down, so even if Suey and her
family are unaffected by the earthquake, she may not have Internet
