Contreras carries a star-shaped lamp on the Maule River in Constitucion town
Sandra Contreras carries a star-shaped lamp on the Maule River, where she lost her daughters and grandchild one year ago during a tsunami brought by the February 2010 earthquake, in Constitucion town, some 364 km (226 miles) south of Santiago, February 25, 2011. The lamp is meant for a memorial that residents are building to commemorate the victims of the 8.8 magnitude earthquake and tsunami that hit Constitucion on February 27, 2010. A year after one of the biggest earthquakes on record slammed Chile with a $30 billion hit to its economy, a massive reconstruction effort is underpinning a strong rebound seen continuing in 2011. But even as Chile celebrates its recovery from the massive 8.8 magnitude quake and ensuing tsunamis that ravaged south central Chile, its growth outlook is clouded by a sharp rally in its peso currency and rising price pressures. The state says it has completed 50 percent of its end of the rebuilding effort after the February 2010 quake, which killed more than 500 people. Picture taken February 25, 2011.
