Dramatic video of 8.2 earthquake off Chile's coast

Posted: Updated:
Here's dramatic video to show you of the moment that 8.2 magnitude earthquake hit off Chile's coast last night. (Tuesday)

The moment the quake struck was caught on this drug store surveillance video.

It captured as shoppers rushed from the shaking store and projects began to fall from the shelves.

At least six people were killed by either heart attacks or being crushed.

Fears of a tsunami forced the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of people from Chile's coast.

The biggest wave was reported to be about six-and-a-half feet.

The tsunami warning and evacuation orders have now been lifted.

The quake also caused power outages and flight cancellations.
