Damaged buildings

People look at damaged buildings in Santiago, after a huge 8.8-magnitude earthquake rocked Chile early morning killing at least 147 people, on February 27, 2010. The massive quake plunged much of the Chilean capital, Santiago, into darkness as it snapped power lines and severed communications, toppling buildings and bridges and triggering a tsunami threatening to roar across the Pacific Ocean, officials said.MARTIN BERNETTI, AFP/Getty Images
