Chile Quake & Tsunami

It has been quite a month around the world from storms to quakes and floods. We have had a major earthquake overnight on the Chile coast. It has generated a tsunami that has prompted tsunami warnings for numerous Pacific islands including Hawaii. There is also a tsunami advisory for Vancouver Island. Residents in the warning areas are urged to get to higher ground. Those in the advisory region have been told to get away from area beaches. In Chile, major damage has been reported with casualties. Details are just coming in, but it appears at least 125 people have died, buildings and bridges have collapsed.
