Santiago airport / MMI IX (Violent shaking): I was laying in bed on the 3rd floor at the airport hotel in Santiago.
Santiago (Chile) (129 km E from epicenter)(no details): Este temblor fue uno más de un conjunto de movimientos sísmicos ocurridos en esta zona del país en los últimos 15 días. Es coincidente con el aniversario N°29 del terremoto del 3 de marzo de 1985, con epicentro en San Antonio, cuya magnitud (7,5) lo ubica entre aquellos que en esta región se registran cada 25 a 30 años según los sismólogos.
