Sweden Seeking Information after Chilean Earthquake

The Swedish Foreign Ministry says it has contact with the Swedish Embassy in Santiago after the severe earthquake in Chile and that the personnel are trying to gather information about damages and so far report no casualties or injuries among Swedes or Chilean Swedes.

Some Chilean Swedes have told Swedish Radio News that they are unharmed but that they are still trying to contact relatives in Chile in the coastal city of Concepción and elsewhere.

Reports maintain that water and electricity supplies have been shut off, that the international airport in Santiago has been closed and that all flights have been cancelled.


At the seismological institute at Uppsala University just north of Stockholm, experts say the earthquake can have serious consequences and that since the epicenter was so near the coastline, there is a possibility of a tsunami wave hitting the coast.  They add that this is not a very populated area but that small coastal towns could be in danger.
