This initial response is quite different that what is being reported on the news, but I'm glad he's safe. I am standing by waiting for his first-hand updates.

My cousin, Connor, has been studying abroad in Chile this past year before he starts college next fall. He is currently living with a host family in Santiago. When we heard about the earthquake, our family was of course nervous for him. I am happy to report that he is safe. He apparently told my aunt he "didn't think it was that bad." They are living without power at the moment, but otherwise are fine.
