Chile earthquake coverage

A quick note: a friend of mine in Santiago is saying that much of the news coverage on CNN and elsewhere is over-dramatizing the effects of the earth quake. In particular, they often show damage and destruction from the hardest hit areas like Concepcion while talking about Santiago.

There was significant damage in Santiago, including loss of phone service and some damage that shut down the airport for a while, but the vast majority of people are fine, and have running water, electricity, etc...
