Great shakes

A street is covered by debris from the earthquake damaged Duty Free Zone of Iquique, in Iquique, Chile, Friday, April 4, 2014. Following a magnitude-8.2 earthquake early in the week, soldiers have kept a close watch on supermarkets and gas stations to prevent looting as many people continued to line up on Friday for gasoline, water and food. The city remained largely peaceful and no new major damage or casualties were reported from the continuing aftershocks that have rattled the sleep-deprived citizens of Chile's north.
