SANTIAGO, Chile - Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his wife Laureen were awakened by a major earthquake as they overnighted in Chile's capital of Santiago.
Buildings shook throughout the city at around 12:50 a.m. local time in what the United State Geological Study rated as a 6.5 earthquake centred 112 kilometres from the city.
Harper's director of communications, Andrew MacDougall, said the prime minister and his wife remained in their rooms and were fine.
Still, the event shook up the media and delegation traveling with Harper who were wrapping up a four-day trip to Colombia and South America.
Chile's National Emergency Office of the Interior and Public Security Ministry ordered the evacuation of certain regions as a precaution.

Looking at the location on Google Earth, I was wondering just how this would be felt, as it appears to actually have been an on land quake, near populated areas.
Are you close to the epicenter?
