Video of the powerful 8.2 magnitude earthquake that struck off the coast of Chile has just surfaced, showing how violent and potentially destructive it could have been.
Luckily, there have been no reports of fatalities or major damage.
The coastal areas were evacuated shortly after the quake, which hit around 6 pm local time. The first wave from the tsunami hit Chile’s northern coast within 45 minutes of the quake, and a warning is in effect for the coast of South and Central America.
