The Ground Trembled

Chile sustained a massive temblor of at least 8.2 magnitude on the Richter scale. The strength of this earthquake is enormous. We must pray for the people afflicted, and we should give aid to reputable relief organizations. This quake was actually hundreds of times more powerful than the 5.1 magnitude quake that struck California, and it is a testament to Chile's earthquake preparation and precautions that only five souls have been lost so far. Remember aftershocks often claim lives as well and that Chile will need time and help to recover.
