Two days after a massive earthquake in Chile, there is now a desperate struggle to find people who may have survived, as international assistance begins to arrive.
Officials now say at least 723 people died, and 19 others are missing. Many survivors are left without water, food and power; Chile’s president has called it an emergency without parallel in the country’s history.
The city of Concepcion, not far from the quake’s epicenter, was especially hard hit. While the 8.8-magnitude quake itself caused many of the deaths, tsunamis that quickly followed may have killed hundreds in coastal towns.
For more on the earthquake’s impact on the Chilean economy, Daljit Dhaliwal interviews Susan Segal, president and CEO of the Americas Society and the Council of the Americas.
