Ninety aftershocks of magnitude 5 or greater followed the initial quake, which measured 8.8

by on dic.03, 2019, under Uncategorized

Rescuers edged their way toward quake victims trapped in a toppled apartment block early Sunday, as looters stole food and robbed banks after one of the strongest earthquakes ever recorded struck Chile.

Authorities put the death toll from Saturday’s magnitude-8.8 quake at about 300, but believed the number would grow. They said 1.5 million Chileans were affected and 500,000 homes severely damaged by the mammoth temblor.

On Sunday afternoon state television was reporting more than 350 deaths in the coastal town of Constitution, some caused by a tsunami that swept the city, according to a Reuters report. It was unclear how this number affected the overall death toll.

The tsunami caused by the quake that swept across the Pacific devastated coastal communities near the epicenter, but caused little damage in other countries, after precautionary evacuations of hundreds of thousands of people. The tsunami warning was lifted a day after the earthquake.

President Michelle Bachelet, who leaves office March 11, declared a “state of catastrophe” in central Chile. “It was a catastrophe of devastating consequences,” she said.

The quake tore apart houses, bridges and highways, and Chileans near the epicenter were thrown from their beds by the force of the mega-quake, which was felt as far away as Sao Paulo in Brazil – 1,800 miles to the east.

Officials said earlier they had counted 214 dead, but more victims were being found. “At the moment there are some 300 fatalities,” Jose Abumohor, a duty chief at the National Emergency Agency, said Sunday.

The full extent of damage remained unclear. Ninety aftershocks of magnitude 5 or greater shuddered across the disaster prone Andean nation within 24 hours of the initial quake. One was nearly as powerful as Haiti’s devastating Jan. 12 earthquake.

Ninety aftershocks of magnitude 5 or greater followed the initial quake, which measured 8.8. One aftershock was nearly as powerful as the earthquake that devastated Haiti in January.

In the capital Santiago, 200 miles to the northeast of the epicenter, the national Fine Arts Museum was badly damaged and an apartment building’s two-story parking lot pancaked, smashing about 50 cars.

Santiago’s airport was closed and its subway shut down.

Speaking on CBS’ “Face the Nation” this morning, Pascal Bonnefoy, a journalist with GlobalPost, reports that Santiago is pretty much under control, with 80% of the population already with electricity restored and public transit partially restored.

But south of the capital, Bonnefoy said, is another matter.

“Down south it’s been a disaster, because the coastal line was completely wiped out,” she said. “That’s the most affected area. There are towns that are basically on the floor now. No local government is functioning because there’s nowhere to function from.”

She said Concepcion, Chile’s second-largest city, which was 70 miles from the quake’s epicenter, was heavily affected.

Police said more than 100 people died in Concepcion, the largest city near the epicenter with more than 200,000 people. The university was among the buildings that caught fire around the city as gas and power lines snapped. Many streets were littered with rubble from edifices and inmates escaped from a nearby prison.

The city’s old houses made of adobe appeared to have borne the brunt of the damage, but a 15-story apartment building also collapsed, likely killing or trapping many people inside.

The city’s streets were strewn with crushed cars, fallen power lines and rubble from fallen buildings. Inmates have escaped from a nearby prison.

The largest building damaged in Concepcion was a newly opened 15-story apartment that toppled backward, trapping an estimated 60 people inside apartments where the floors suddenly became vertical and the contents of every room slammed down onto rear walls.

“It fell at the moment the earthquake began,” said 4th Lt. Juan Schulmeyer of Concepcion’s 7th Firefighter Company, pointing to where the foundation collapsed. A full 24 hours later, only 16 people had been pulled out alive, and six bodies had been recovered.

Rescuers heard a woman call out at 11 p.m. Saturday from what seemed like the 6th floor, but hours later they were making slow progress in reaching her. Rescuers were working with two power saws and an electric hammer on a generator, but their supply of gas was running out and it was taking them a frustrating hour and a half to cut each hole through the concrete.

“It’s very difficult working in the dark with aftershocks, and inside it’s complicated. The apartments are totally destroyed. You have to work with great caution,” said Paulo Klein, who was leading a group of rescue specialists from Puerto Montt. They flew in on an air force plane with just the equipment they could carry. Heavy equipment was coming later along with 12 other rescuers.

Desperate Chileans swarmed a supermarket loading dock in the city of Concepcion on Sunday, taking with them whatever they could carry. Merchandise was thrown to the multitude outside and those who caught something turned to run as the police were nearing the scene.

“I think it is necessity. We don’t have water. We don’t have anything to eat,” said one woman. “I have a baby and I don’t have diapers. I don’t have anything.”

One man was bold enough to carry away what looked like a dishwasher.

Police used water cannon and tear gas to scatter the looters.

In the village of Reumen, a tractor trailer slammed into a dangling pedestrian overpass and 40 tons of concrete and steel crunched the truck, covering Chile’s main highway with smashed grapes, tomatoes and 서울출장샵 cucumbers – one of several overpasses toppled along the highway.

Truck driver Jaime Musso, 53, thought his truck was being buffeted by strong winds and by the time he saw the overpass hanging down over Highway 5 there was no chance of stopping, so he aimed for the spot where he thought he would cause the least damage and brought down the overpass onto his truck. He said he survived “by millimeters.”

As night fell Saturday, about a dozen men and children sat around a bonfire in the remains of their homes in Curico, a town 122 miles south of the capital, Santiago.

“We were sleeping when we felt the quake, very strongly. I got up and went out the door. When I looked back my bed was covered in rubble,” said survivor Claudio Palma.

Chile’s main seaport, in Valparaiso, was ordered closed while damage was assessed. Two oil refineries shut down. The state-run Codelco, the world’s largest copper producer, halted work at two of its mines, but said it expected them to resume operations quickly.

The jolt set off a tsunami that swamped San Juan Bautista village on Robinson Crusoe Island off Chile, killing at least five people and leaving 11 missing, said Guillermo de la Masa, head of the government emergency bureau for the Valparaiso region.

On the mainland, several huge waves inundated part of the major port city of Talcahuano, near hard-hit Concepcion. A large boat was swept more than a block inland.

State television showed scenes of devastation in coastal towns, where houses were blasted away by water, leaving scraps of wood and metal – and complaints of homeless quake victims that officials had not yet brought water or food.

The surge of water raced across the Pacific, setting off alarm sirens in Hawaii, Polynesia and Tonga, but the tsunami waves proved small and did little damage as they reached as far as Japan.

Robert Williams, a geophysicist at the U.S. Geological Survey, said the Chilean quake was hundreds of times more powerful than Haiti’s magnitude-7 quake, though it was deeper and cost far fewer lives.

The largest earthquake ever recorded struck the same area of Chile on May 22, 1960. The magnitude-9.5 quake killed 1,655 people and made 2 million homeless. Saturday’s quake matched a 1906 temblor off the Ecuadorean coast as the seventh-strongest ever recorded in the world.

Some of them have died and you always find yourself at a moment of, ‘Did I miss something? Could I have done more?’ And in this situation, I think we all could have

Former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart opened up about his reaction to news that his friend, comedian Louis C.K., admitted to masturbating in front of women and using his influence “irresponsibly.”

On the “Today” show, 경기도출장샵 when asked how he felt about the admission, Stewart said, “Stunned, I think.” 

He continued, “You give your friends the benefit of the doubt. I tried to think of it in terms of, I’ve had have friends who have compulsions and have done things — gambling drinking or drugs — and we’ve lost some of them. Some of them have died and you always find yourself at a moment of, ‘Did I miss something? Could I have done more?’ And in this situation, I think we all could have. So you feel anger at what he did to people.”

Stewart conceded, “Look, comedy on its best day is not a great environment for women. The idea that there was this added layer of pressure and manipulation and fear and humiliation … I think it’s a question of, we’re used to being in charge, and I think if you talk to women, they’re in a very difficult position, and you get mad at yourself, too, for laughing it off or for thinking, ‘That didn’t happen.’ And it’s hard.”

Stewart also addressed a May 2016 conversation in which he dismissed the rumors about C.K. During a podcast taping for David Axelrod’s “The Axe Files,” Stewart laughed off a question about why he hadn’t spoken up about the rumors about C.K. and said, “So the internet said Louis harassed women? … I don’t know what you’re talking about.” 

On “Today,” Stewart said, “I was like, ‘Look, I know this is very serious, but I know Louis, he’s always been a gentleman to me,’ which, again, it speaks to the blindness that I think a man has.” Stewart said that was the first he had heard of the rumors.

The former “Daily Show” host said he hopes the explosion of sexual harassment allegations against powerful men will bring about change. 

“It’s another one of those endemic, systemic and complex problems that we all haven’t had the urgency for, certainly myself included,” he admitted.

A large boat was swept more than a block inland

by on dic.03, 2019, under Uncategorized

One of the largest earthquakes ever recorded tore apart houses, bridges and highways in central Chile on Saturday and sent a tsunami racing halfway around the world. Chileans near the epicenter were tossed about as if shaken by a giant, and the head of the emergency agency said authorities believed at least 300 people were dead.

The magnitude-8.8 quake was felt as far away as Sao Paulo in Brazil – 1,800 miles to the east. The full extent of damage remained unclear as scores of aftershocks – one nearly as powerful as Haiti’s devastating Jan. 12 earthquake – shuddered across the disaster-prone Andean nation.

An 8.8 earthquake is more powerful than the largest nuclear bomb ever tested, officials told CBS News. Paul Caruso, of the U.S. Geological Survey, told CBS News correspondent Seth Doane that Chile’s quake was much bigger than the one that rocked Haiti last month — releasing 500 times more energy.

“If the epicenter was near a populated town, the town would be utterly destroyed,” said Caruso. “Fortunately in this case, the epicenter was off the coast. And the people of Chile have experience with earthquakes and they were well prepared for this one.”

President Michelle Bachelet declared a “state of catastrophe” in central Chile but said the government has not asked for assistance from other countries. If it does, President Obama said, the United States “will be there.” Around the world, leaders echoed his sentiment.

Mr. Obama said the U.S. is ready to assist Chile in rescue and recovery efforts. He said the U.S. has resources that are in position to deploy should the Chilean government ask for U.S. assistance.

In Chile, newly built apartment buildings slumped and fell. Flames devoured a prison. Millions of people fled into streets darkened by the failure of power lines. The collapse of bridges tossed and crushed cars and trucks, and complicated efforts to reach quake-damaged areas by road.

“It was absolutely frightening. Absolutely terrifying. I really thought it was the end of the world,” Cecilia Lagos told CBS News via Skype.

At least 214 people were killed and 15 were missing as of Saturday evening, Bachelet said in a national address on television. While that remained the official estimate, Carmen Fernandez, head of the National Emergency Agency, said later: “We think the real figure tops 300. And we believe this will continue to grow.”

Bachelet also said 1.5 million people had been affected by the quake, and officials in her administration said 500,000 homes were severely damaged.

In Talca, 서울출장샵 just 65 miles from the epicenter, people sleeping in bed suddenly felt like they were flying through major airplane turbulence as their belongings cascaded around them from the shuddering walls at 3:34 a.m. (1:34 a.m. EST, 0634 GMT).

A deafening roar rose from the convulsing earth as buildings groaned and clattered. The sound of screams was confused with the crash of plates and windows.

Then the earth stilled, silence returned and a smell of moist dust rose in the streets, where stunned survivors took refuge.

A journalist emerging into the darkened street scattered with downed power lines saw a man, some of his own bones apparently broken, weeping and caressing the hand of a woman who had died in the collapse of a cafe. Two other victims lay dead a few feet (meters) away.

Also near the epicenter was Concepcion, one of the country’s largest cities, where a 15-story building collapsed, leaving a few floors intact.

“I was on the 8th floor and all of a sudden I was down here,” said Fernando Abarzua, marveling that he escaped with no major injuries. He said a relative was still trapped in the rubble six hours after the quake, “but he keeps shouting, saying he’s OK.”

Chilean state television reported that 209 inmates escaped from prison in the city of Chillan, near the epicenter, after a fire broke out.

In the capital of Santiago, 200 miles northeast of the epicenter, a car dangled from a collapsed overpass, the national Fine Arts Museum was badly damaged and an apartment building’s two-story parking lot pancaked, smashing about 50 cars whose alarms rang incessantly.

While most modern buildings survived, a bell tower collapsed on the Nuestra Senora de la Providencia church and several hospitals were evacuated due to damage.

Santiago’s airport was closed, with smashed windows, partially collapsed ceilings and destroyed pedestrian walkways in the passenger terminals. The capital’s subway was shut as well, and transportation was further limited because hundreds of buses were stuck behind a damaged bridge.

Chile’s main seaport, in Valparaiso about 75 miles from Santiago, was ordered closed while damage was assessed. The state-run Codelco, the world’s largest copper producer, shut two of its mines, the newspaper La Tercera reported.

President-elect Sebastian Pinera angrily reported seeing some looting while flying over damaged areas. He vowed “to fight with maximum energy looting attempts that I saw with my own eyes.”

The jolt set off a tsunami that swamped San Juan Bautista village on Robinson Crusoe Island off Chile, killing at least five people and leaving 11 missing, said Guillermo de la Masa, head of the government emergency bureau for the Valparaiso region. He said the huge waves also damaged several government buildings on the island.

On the mainland, several huge waves inundated part of the major port city of Talcahuano, near the hard-hit city of Concepcion. A large boat was swept more than a block inland. Pinera flew over the area and said an unspecified number of people had died in Talacahuano.

Waves also flooded hundreds of houses in the town of Vichato, in the BioBio region.

The quake struck after concert-goers had left South America’s leading music festival in the coastal city of Vina del Mar, but it caught partiers leaving a disco.

It then raced across the Pacific, setting off alarm sirens in Hawaii, Polynesia and Tonga and prompting warnings across all 53 nations ringing the vast ocean.

Tsunami waves reached Hawaii, where experts said they could grow to 8 feet (2.5 meters). The U.S. Navy moved a half-dozen vessels out of Pearl Harbor as a precaution, according to Navy spokesman Lt. Myers Vasquez. Shore-side Hilo International Airport also was closed. In California, officials reported a 3-foot (1-meter) surge in Ventura Harbor pulled loose several navigational buoys.

About 13 million people live in the area where shaking was strong to severe, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. USGS geophysicist Robert Williams said the Chilean quake was hundreds of times more powerful than Haiti’s magnitude-7 quake, though it was deeper and cost far fewer lives.

More than 50 aftershocks topped magnitude 5, including one of magnitude 6.9.

The largest earthquake ever recorded struck the same area of Chile on May 22, 1960. The magnitude-9.5 quake killed 1,655 people and left 2 million homeless. It caused a tsunami that killed people in Hawaii, Japan and the Philippines and caused damage along the west coast of the United States.

Saturday’s quake matched a 1906 temblor off the Ecuadorean coast as the seventh-strongest ever recorded in the world.

His death could set back the militants’ plans to disrupt elections in the south

4761 63 35] \'0391\' 331522 Police suspect the attack was launched by a joint group of Abu Sayyaf and rogue Moro Islamic Liberation Front members, allegedly led by sub-leader Puruji Indama.

Indama has been blamed for the kidnapping of two Chinese and a Filipino worker from a plywood factory.

The two Chinese captives – Zi Shun Lu, a.k.a. Oscar Lu, 부산출장샵 51; and Bo Shung Tan, a.k.a. Michael Tan, 27 – were rescued by government forces hours before the attack. [The Filipino hostage, Mark Singson, was beheaded after his employer, Hi-Tech Wood Craft Corporation, failed to pay ransom.]

Authorities said they could not ascertain if the attack had anything to do with the recent deaths of several Abu Sayyaf members, including Albader Parad, the man behind the kidnapping of International Red Cross volunteers.

His death could set back the militants’ plans to disrupt elections in the south.

An Abu Sayyaf member involved in the kidnapping of several Europeans and one American in Malaysia back in 2000 was also arrested a few days ago.

The military has been expecting the small but violent Abu Sayyaf group, known for kidnappings, bombings and beheadings, to launch retaliatory attacks for Parad’s death.

An army spokeswoman said villagers in Tubigan were asleep when the rebels came and started spraying houses with automatic gunfire, setting them on fire.

“Each rebel brought a gallon of gasoline, then they started torching the houses,” said one member of a civilian militia force.

Hundreds of people have been displaced

The army said nearly 20 others were wounded, including four children who suffered third-degree burns. Those in critical conditions were taken to hospitals in Zamboanga City on the mainland.

“Another thing was how LONG it went on

by on dic.03, 2019, under Uncategorized

Nathan Crooks, a journalist for Business News Americas, 서울출장샵 told CBS News he was asleep in Santiago when the quake hit, violently shaking his house.

“We’re used to earthquakes in Chile, and we get lots of tremors. You could tell that this one was different from the sound of it. It was really violent! I have never been in an earthquake this large.

“You could hear the walls shaking, books dropping, dishes dropping, it was this general roar, almost like a freight train – everything combined, everywhere in the entire city.”

Crooks positioned himself under a doorframe.

“I live in a new high rise built for earthquakes,” he said. “It was interesting to see the building move with the quake.

“Another thing was how LONG it went on. It went on for a loooong time,” said Crooks. “That’s what surprised me the most. It was violent shaking for what seemed like a couple of minutes.”

Crooks said electric power out was out. “I went downstairs to get a handle of what was going on, to make sure no structural damage to the building. There was no cell phone service. You could hear car alarms going off, sirens, a lot of general commotion.”

Public transport was stopped. He described the rubble he saw on a brief walk, and the fate of one of the most famous churches in Santiago. “Not too much damage, but the main church of Providencia in the old part of town, one of the top towers collapsed. It’s very potent to see that image.”
