Earthquake Damage in Chile in Photos

12 Oct

Though serious damage was minimal to Santiago, the suburbs and smaller cities outside of the capital were hard hit in many ways. Because the buildings weren’t constructed as well or older, many buildings lost roofs, walls, or fell apart completely. A theme that we kept talking about over the weekend was the tremendous earthquake which struck in the summer. In the countryside of the Colchagua Valley I was able to see some of the damage left. Here are a couple of photos of a destroyed church in Santa Cruz, in the Colchagua Valley.
