Yesterday all the internet users were stuck to get the live news of Chile earthquake and Hawaii tsunami. These two terms were also hot trending topics in the search engine networks around the world. Yesterday video streaming site Ustream ran live video of local news broadcasts where they covered the earthquake of Chile and the tsunami of Hawaii. According to Ustream around 4.35 million people watched live of their coverages of earthquake and tsunami on the internet.
On Saturday, a 8.8 magnitude of earthquake struck Chile on the south of Santiago at 3:34 local time. The buildings, roads, bridges were highly damaged and power also collapsed. The airport was so badly damaged that it ceased operation, and the city’s Fine Arts Museum suffered serious damage. 00,000 homes have been damaged or destroyed, and at least 300 deaths have been recorded so far. More numbers are still on count.
Tsunami warnings were announced all around the pacific, including in Hawaii, but in most cases the waves turned out not to be severe. Tsunami hit on a island of Japan and Hawaii.
Some twitter users of Chile posted images on Twitter. We posted some shocking photos of the damages. Here are some instructions on how you can help them by donation on the internet. Google launched a person finder, so if you have information about a missing person (or if you’re looking for someone) affected by the earthquake or tsunami, you can connect with others there.
Here’s an embedded pre-recorded sample video of Ustream (ustream) coverage below.
