Chile Earthquake and Its Wideranging Effects

Chile was struck this morning by a massive magnitude 8.8 magnitude earthquake that also raised tsunami flags throughout the Pacific region. While this earthquake was 500 times as intense as the one that hit Haiti last month, there are some contrasting circumstances that indicate that this one, while still quite devastating, will likely result in a much lower death toll than the Haiti quake last month.

UPDATE: Here is info on organizations aiding the Chilean earthquake victims.
