First aniversary of 27-F Chilean 8.8 earthquake  
Today marks the first anniversary of the 8.8 mega earthquake and tsunami in Chile. People are, to say the least, very uneasy, and very afraid.
because today there was an aftershock of 5.8 to 6.0 in Richter scale at 10:29:25 PM at epicenter

BIO-BIO, CHILE
Distances 37 km (23 miles) S of Concepcion, Bio-Bio, Chile
69 km (43 miles) NE of Lebu, Bio-Bio, Chile
76 km (47 miles) WNW of Los Angeles, Bio-Bio, Chile
469 km (291 miles) SSW of SANTIAGO, Region Metropolitana, Chile

we know little of this one, apparently only damage and problems with the basic services (light, phone)

but this happened today!
A big Hug for all the people in the south of Chile!

life was difficult this year a big (VERY BIG) quantity of the people have no homes yet, only provisional accommodations.
The tourism who is the first income of the zone who was devastated was deserted this summer!



the people remember their dead ones with candles who are offered to the sea and prayers.

We must remember too the people out there who is suffering because this nature disasters, like now in New Zeland where there are 200 dead now!

Take a moment to remember the people who died this day a year past and pray for them and their families who still had not a place top call home!
