Emergency Camps outside of Constitucion, Chile

This video is an example of the type of emergency camps being set up in various locations around Chile following the devastating tsunami. This particular camp will have about 300 small temporary homes that will provide shelter for approximately 2000 people. These are very basic units with no electricity, no running water, and no sanitation. Each unit is divided into two rooms which will serve as many as 6-8 people for cooking, eating, sleeping, storage and living.
