One last thing before I hit the hay (it's after 1 AM here). I've just been studying the USGS world quake map and it strikes me that southern Sth America looks pretty quiet. I suspect we could see some quite strong activity there very shortly, most likely in coastal Chile. Peru and Bolivia have also been fairly quiescent but I'm iffy on them right now. My feeling is for Chile. This is not a firm prediction, by any means. I'd have to give a lot more detail for that. But I feel it's worth watching. South of Santiago seems more likely than north.
can only say that I feel a strong fight or flight when this happens. All dressed up and nowhere to go.....

It looks like your intuition toward Chile was right on target, Mike. Mag 5.8 Chile
Looking at the waveforms, I suspect USGS may be a tad low at mag 5.8. We'll have to wait for revisions.
