Do you have ideas of things to do / tasks ?

I think satellite imagery should be available "soon" for tracing.

Do you guys know the impacted area ?

Maybe you could plan some kind of work plan for volunteers to help ?

(e.g. with a wiki page, or a shared spreadsheet on Google Doc)

How to split the work ? By area ?

What would be priority themes ?

Locate damages announced in the news ? (Damaged roads, collapsed 
bridges, maybe damaged buildings ? )

How to coordinate ? talk-cl (OSM specific), crisismappers-chile (more 
general, e.g. also including Ushahidi), osm-talk (to get general OSM 
attention) ?

Is there an IRC channel ?

(The most relevant I am aware of might be #crisiscommons on irc.rhok.org

Of course, there is also #osm on oftc.net, for OSM stuff)
