boo. part two.
See the red square. That's 136 miles south of Santiago. It was a 7.2 earthquake. (Remember how much I love these?) I know what you're thinking. 136 miles is a lot of miles. No way we felt it all the way here in Santiago. Wrong.
This time my poor roommate was in the shower. She fell down. My other roommate and I were trying to grab our things (phones, keys, wallets) as the walls shook around us. The lamp over the dining room table was seriously shaking back and forth. We were about to head downstairs (we're only on the second floor, thankfully) when it stopped. We never ended up leaving the apartment. Good thing too since my roommate was still in her towel.
Apparently there is an evacuation of the coast. Just in case.
What the hell, Chile? What the hell.
