!Warning! A tsunami warning has been issued for the southern coasts of Peru and the evacuation for certain areas ordered (coasts of Arequipa, Ica, Tacna and Moquegua). Due to the force of the earthquake a tsunami might be expected at around 21:15 hours (local time Peru). UPDATE: As a big relieve at 20:45 hours (local time) a wave of only 20 cm reached the Peruvian coasts. No damages have been reported...

Update (23:47 hours): We have received reports that there have been 5 casualties in the affected areas in Chile. In the south of Peru (border region with Chile) some roads have been damaged. Detailed assessment of further damages to infrastructure will be only available in the morning.

Update (April 3rd) Even two days after the earthquake the full extent of damages isn't clear. There are no reports about damages on Peruvian side. But according to local press in Chile about 2500 buildings are damaged or destroyed, 8 main roads are affected by cracks and / or landslides; and by now unfortunately 8 people (among them 1 Peruvian) lost their life. Authorities try to reestablish the electricity and water supply.
