    This was a powerful and long duration earth movement, but was with a long wavelenght and the movement was "slow and soft". I don't believe that there are considerable damages.

    this quake was similar to the first miniquakes after the one of the 27th.. as juan said it was slow and soft and it last like less than 1 minute ..we were a bit scared cause we thought that this would be as strong as the first one.
    hope that there is no damage in Bio-Bio.

    Regards from Villarrica,Chile.
