. COUNTRIES: CHILE : DISASTERS: EARTHQUAKES: Chile Counts Cost of Earthquake as Tsunami Fears Ease Chile Counts Cost of Earthquake as Tsunami Fears Ease Page last updated at 14:39 GMT, Sunday, 28 February 2010 BBC News <http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8541546.stm>Chile has begun to count the cost of its deadly 8.8 magnitude earthquake as nations around the Pacific eased their fears of a devastating tsunami.
The quake, on Saturday morning, killed at least 300 people - 90% of them in their homes. It is feared the damage may cost tens of billions of dollars.
One major rescue effort is in the city of Concepcion, where dozens are feared trapped in a collapsed apartment block.
<snip>Chilean President Michelle Bachelet said that two million people had been affected by the earthquake.
The 8.8 quake is one of the biggest ever recorded and the largest to hit Chile in 50 years.
'Catastrophe'Many Chileans in affected areas have spent the first night since the earthquake outdoors, afraid to stay inside.
In Concepcion, close to the epicentre, mayor Jacqueline van Rysselberghe said dozens of people were trapped in the collapsed apartment block.
"Time is of the essence to save the people inside this building," she said.
Rescue coordinator Commander Marcelo Plaza said: "We spent the whole night working, smashing through walls to find survivors. The biggest problem is fuel, we need fuel for our machinery and water for our people."
National television showed pictures of people removing goods from supermarkets in Concepcion, Chile's second city, before police arrived to clear the crowd with tear gas and water cannon.
The situation there has been described as critical.Ms van Rysselberghe said Concepcion had as yet received no food or other aid from Santiago and that it was urgently needed.
