Where is Jesse Ventura when you need him?
Why would the US Government target Chile's second largest city for destruction so soon after destroying Haiti? Could it have something to do with the new regional organization being formed by Cuba and Venezuela?
These are questions that mus be answered before this fearsome weapon is deployed upon a helpless world again.
The quake downed buildings and houses in Santiago and knocked out a major bridge connecting the northern and southern sections of the country.Seriously, this is a huge quake. Historically it would be about the 4th most powerful ever. The most powerful being a 9.5 quake in the same area back in 1960. That killed 1700 people. So far the death toll is low compared to Haiti. I believe that is due to lower population density and better building codes. That doesn't mean the quake won't be devastating. If you are a prayer keep them in your prayers in you are a donater the Red Cross will probably have something set up soon, so will World Vision and Doctors without Borders I'm sure.
It struck at 3:34 a.m. local time and was centered about 200 miles southwest of Santiago, at a depth of 22 miles, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. The epicenter was some 70 miles from Concepcion, Chile’s second-largest city, where more than 200,000 people live.
Phone lines were down in Concepcion as of 7:30 a.m. and no reports were coming out of that area. The quake in Chile was more powerful than the magnitude 7.0 earthquake that caused widespread damage in Haiti on Jan 12, killing at least 230,000, earthquake experts reported on CNN International....
Eyewitnesses on Facebook and Twitter reported that the quake was felt from Japan to Argentina. The quake struck at the end of the Chilean summer vacation, with hundreds of thousands of people expected to be traveling back home this weekend.
