Major 8.8 Earthquake hits Chile

THERE WAS A MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE SOUTHWEST OF SANTIAGO, CHILE SATURDAY MORNING.

Bud Anderson has phoned via satellite phone to let us know that everyone is okay. He was approx. 55 mi./90 km. north of the epicenter when the quake hit. They have retreated into the mountains along with other numerous refugees.

Kathy, I called your Dad and gave him the good news that y'all are ok and how to get on the frg web site. Both were thrilled and relieved to hear good news about all of you. Me too! I've been walking in your boots-- still snowing here. Hugs and kisses. Stay safe. Much love, Leem

Thank you for posting the good news that you are all safe. The moment we heard the two words "earthquake" and "Chili" , our hearts raced.

We'll watch the FRG site to see if there is anything that we can do to help from here.
