Yamin Terrified By Chilean Earthquake

Singer ELLIOTT YAMIN feared for his life when he was caught up in the massive earthquake which shook Chile on Friday (26Feb10).
The Wait For You hitmaker, a former American Idol contestant, was in the South American country to play a music festival and was using the computer in his hotel room when the tremor struck.
He immediately took to his Twitter.com page to update fans about the situation in a series of frantic posts.
Yamin wrote, "Devastation. Huge earthquake just now in Chile! I swear I thought this was the end of my life! I just escaped w (with) my life, from an 8.3 earthquake!
"Complete and utter chaos on the streets… no power… my heart is beatin outta (sic) my chest! Tsunami warning… I am only a mile inland!"
He later assured followers of his safety after he was evacuated from the building.
He added, "Hey everybody, we are totally safe and sound for the time being... I’m finally calmer, and dawn is approaching, which will help! Thanks for your prayers. I’m totally calm now... we're all together, got blankets from our rooms, and we’re all huddled on the street. No aftershocks in a while."
