Baby Augusto and his family are ok. They live in Santiago, Chile and I was pretty worried for a while (they live on the 6th floor of an apartment building) until I heard from him about noon yesterday. They haven't had power, water or gas and some broken dishes that came out of the cupboards but they're ok. I can't even imagine what it was like further south... He was telling me what it was like when it happened - feeling the little rumble get bigger then feeling the building swaying and things crashing. They even had another little trembler while I was talking to him again last night.
I might have to rethink my plans to visit there... just sayin'. that's some scary shit.
