An 8.8-magnitude earthquake hit Chile Saturday, in what the Chilean government calls one of the worst hits the country's ever faced.
Chilean president Michelle Bachelet said the death toll from the earthquake reached 708 and is expected to rise, placing the country in a "state of catastrophe."
Concepción, one of the hardest hit cities during the earthquake, is said to be running low on food. Looters in Concepción are facing military force for attempting to steal from supermarkets, according to Al-Jazeera.
Curfews are being enforced in Concepcíon and Maule, beginning at 2100 local time, according to BBC's report.
It is also reported that more than 60 aftershocks went through Chile after the initial hit.
US and British officials sent out aid despite Chile not requesting help with the immediate relief efforts.
