At 1:34 a.m. EST, an 8.8 earthquake was registered along the cost of Chile, 70 miles from Concepcion and 200 miles from the capital of Santiago. CNN reports numerous aftershocks—some as big as 6.9. Seventy-eight people are dead, but Chilean President Michelle Bachelet thinks the toll will be greater, adding, "We are taking all the necessary measures at this time." According to CBS News, the earthquake prompted the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center to issue a "tsunami warning — its highest alert — for Hawaii... A warning was also in effect for Guam, American Samoa and dozens of other Pacific islands. The first waves were expected to arrive in Hawaii at 11:19 a.m. Saturday (4:19 p.m. EST)." Hawaiian residents are being evacuated and sirens will be sounded.
