A massive earthquake with a magnitude of 8.8 has hit central Chile, killing dozens of people.
The quake seemed to last more than two minutes in Santiago. Buildings seemed to resist the quake very well.
It was tremendous; the buildings were literally dancing in the air; I've driven through the old downtown and there's no relevant damage, but there are some collapsed bridges.
We are in Santiago. Quake lasted about thirty seconds. Buildings shook violently. Seem to all have withstood structural damage but there is broken glass.
Yes, I felt it at 3:40am, we were in bed but woke up with the shaking
I am in the La Reina/Las Condes area of Santiago. It's OK on our few streets - lasted about two minutes
