Chile earthquake: an update from the region

The World

Over 700 lay dead and over two million have been left homeless after the weekend’s 8.8 earthquake rocked Chile. Pascale Bonnefoy, correspondent for The Global Post in Chile, has an update from Santiago, and says that many of the homeless are staying with relatives or they are on the streets trying to protect their property from vandals and looters.

We also talk with John Christian, who is an independent consultant, and geotechnical and earthquake engineer, to see if the United States is well prepared if any of our cities are subjected to a massive earthquake.
