On Wednesday afternoon, Associated Press reporter Michael Warren joined us by satellite from Concepcion, Chile, where he has been reporting on the aftermath of the massive earthquake there and the numerous strong aftershocks.

“People are jittery,” Warren told us, detailing how aftershocks have sent Chileans scrambling out of buildings and how tsunami fears sent people charging up hills.

The arrival of soldiers in Concepcion was met with applause from residents, who continue to worry about looting despite many of their fears being unfounded or inflamed by rumor-mongering, he said.
