I came very close to jumping off my balcony on to a van in the lot. That was a magnitude 6.0 it felt like a train running into the building for about 45 seconds, with after-shocks of the same duration, and almost the same intensity.
I sincerely hope the people of the great state of Chile are spared the worst carnage, and suffering a quake of that magnitude is capable of!
