UPDATE: *FIRST TSUNAMI WAVES REACH CHILE COAST, RADIO COOPERATIVA SAYS

At shortly after 1945ET, a massive 8.2 (revised up from 8.0) earthquake hit close to the coast of Chile:

*MAGNITUDE 8.0 QUAKE HITS OFF COAST OF CHILE, USGS REPORTS
*CHILE QUAKE MAGNITUDE REVISED UP FROM 8.0 TO 8.2 BY USGS
*FLASH: TSUNAMI WARNING ISSUED AFTER MAGNITUDE 8.0 QUAKE HITS OFF
*QUAKE CUTS ELECTRICITY SUPPLY TO MUCH OF ARICA, CHILE: TVN

The BBC reports the quake was shallow (which means it felt more powerful) and the tsunami wave’s arrival is imminent. Copper prices are jumping on the news as the region is an active mining area.
