U6 Unit 4

Keep an eye on the recent news about the Chile earthquake which hit the country at 20:46 local time (23:46 GMT). A magnitude 8.2 earthquake has caused a small tsunami for Chile and Peru and thousands of people have been evacuated from coastal areas following a tsunami warning from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. This warning is due to lift at 08.00 GMT. The earthquake has also caused landslides which have blocked some roads.

Try to examine the management strategies in place, evaluate their effectiveness and identify factors that have affected the response taken.
