As many here are no doubt aware, a devastating earthquake in Chile has generated a tsunami with the potential to cause widespread damage across much of the Pacific. We have many members living in the regions affected by the tsunami warning. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

our geological agency here in the Philippines already sent tsunami warning but only level 1 which means no civilian evacuation on coastal areas...

They say if ever we'll be hit by tsunamis, it will arrive at 6am GMT (if i'm not mistaken)

I have family all over Chile. Most are OK, in some cases badly shaken - a few still not reached.

Chile is very well prepared for this sort of thing, from construction standards through to emergency preparedness. Still, it's rough.

For the nerds among you: the Chilean geological institute has pointed out that the way the scale works, this quake is 77 times more powerful than the one to hit Haiti. Yes, you read correctly - 77 times.

my wife just got back from haiti on a relief mission with an org she has helped set up , to bring supplies and other aid , i gave her my e-410 for the trip with a 16 gb compact flash

the images she returned with were heart wrenching, touching , hopeful ,and just plain real, incredibly ,brutally real.........

my hopes for all in chile dealing with this disaster , and all our friends throughout the pacific who may be in the path of a tsunami, is that you are safe personally and safe from hardship , i wish for all of your safety and happiness in these difficult times
