On 1 Apr 2014, a 8.2-magnitude earthquake occurred in the shallow depths near the Chilean coast, 95 km Northwest of Iquique. It was the largest in a sequence of earthquakes in northern Chile that started on 1 Jan 2014. A tsunami alert was issued for Chile, Peru and Ecuador, and later extended to Colombia and Panama; tsunami watches were issued for Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico. Timely alert messages allowed for the evacuation of close to 1 million people in areas with high tsunami risk on the coast of Chile and Easter Island. Six people were killed, around 2,000 houses near Iquique were damaged, and power and utility network interruptions, minor flooding and landslides affecting roads were reported.


Thanks  to the very significant response of Rotary Clubs across RIBI and Scandinavia we were able to send a total of 800 Water-Survival Boxes that were distributed by our partner aid agency Humanity First to displaced families in the Western Visayas area of the Central Philippines. With your help we have since been gradually building our stock ready for ‘the next one’.
