‘A state of catastrophe’ caused by earthquake in Chile

‘A state of catastrophe’ caused by earthquake in Chile
BY MICHAEL BOWMAN
VOA NEWS

WASHINGTON — Scores of aftershocks have battered Chile after the most powerful earthquake in decades inflicted massive damage and killed more than 300 people. The rest of the Pacific region appears to have been spared from tsunamis that were feared after the quake struck early Saturday.

Chilean rescue teams have worked frantically to reach people trapped in buildings that collapsed when the 8.8-magnitude quake caused the ground to convulse for more than a minute.

Jolted by a barrage of aftershocks, some as strong as 6.9 magnitude, many Chileans are staying out of their homes and sleeping outdoors.

One woman said she and her family do not want to be inside, and that they only go indoors to use the bathroom. She said it is safer outdoors.
