Chile: Massive 8.8 Earthquake This Morning

Tsunami warnings issued over a wide area as far away as Japan

SANTIAGO, Chile – A massive 8.8-magnitude earthquake struck Chile early Saturday, killing at least 78 people, collapsing buildings and setting off a tsunami.

A huge wave reached a populated area in the Robinson Crusoe Islands, 410 miles (660 kilometers) off the Chilean coast, said President Michele Bachelet.
Tsunami warnings were issued over a wide area, including South America, Hawaii, Australia and New Zealand, Japan, the Philippines, Russia and many Pacific islands.

“It has been a devastating earthquake,” Interior Minister Edmundo Perez Yoma told reporters.

    Hmmm, some said Haiti’s earthquake was attribute to their voodoo worship. I wonder if it the same for Chile. It’s amazing how we so harshly judge our own. Haiti, I’m still sorry. My heart ges out to chile, but their suffering is more infrastructural; they will get all the they need.

  5. Hi,

    It is quite obvious that earthquakes are unleashing worldwide. There is a free book on forthcoming events such as earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes and eventually Earth’s pole shift, all of them triggered by the approach of planet Hercolubus or Nibiru. That book is an important alert and a guide to prepare ourselves for the coming times.

    Just go to and click on the ‘free copy’ link. There are translations to several languages.

  6. I have watched the video. After careful consideration, I have decided to keep on smoking and drinking. That is one way to insure I will be spared the inevitable doom.

    It is amazing how CNN has not found the time to show one dead person sprawled out in the streets of Chile….like they did to the poor Haitian souls !

    All we see it the structural damage to buildings and shreds of personal possessions scattered across the streets.

    The Poor Blackman !!
