International Medical Corps is coordinating with ONEMI (the National Office of Emergencies and Information) through its representative to assess the needs at local hospitals and clinics on the ground in Chile.

The International Medical Corps said it was also gathering emergency medicines and supplies, and had additional emergency response teams of volunteer doctors and nurses on standby, ready to deploy as needed.

The 8.8-magnitude earthquake was one of the strongest on record, sending tsunami warnings throughout the Pacific and triggering aftershocks as powerful as 6.9 and with a death toll of 723, according to ONEMI.

International Medical Corps was treating patients on the ground in Haiti within 22 hours of its January earthquake.
