Powerful Earthquake Struck Chile

Another major earthquake happened  just after a 7.0 earthquake hit Okinawa.

A magnitude 8.8 earthquake hit central Chile early Saturday.

Chile is in South America.

At least 6 people were killed.

This is a very powerful earthquake.

May be more people were killed.

The earthquake was located near the city of Concepcion.

Concepcion is the second largest city in Chile.

The city is 212 miles (341km) from capital Santiago.

The earthquake struck at 3:34 am (1:34am ET).

There are reports of collapsed building in Santiago.

So far CNN has not reported the destruction in Conception.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a tsunami warning for Chile and Peru.

Tsunami watch has been issued for Ecuador, Colombia, Panama and Costa Rica.

The center recorded a tsunami wave as high as 9 feet.

According to USGS the largest earthquake in the world was recorded in Chile.

It happened on May 22, 1960 with a magnitude of 9.5 killing 1665 people.

This is a real disaster and I am very sad to learn about this news.

I hope that we can stop the earthquakes.

Aftermath of Earthquake in Haiti.

The 7.0 earthquake destroyed lots and lots of buildings in Port-au-Prince.

There is no electricity and water in the city.

People sleep outside; in the parks, by the streets or just outside their houses.

Thousands and thousands of people died in the earthquake.

People cannot find their family members.

They must be very, very, very sad.

The President’s residence is destroyed.


Dead bodies are by the streets.

Bodies lie covered on the side of the road in Port-au-Prince

People cannot clean themselves because there is no water.

People can get sick if they don’t wash their hands or drink dirty water.

More people could die.

Children may be lost.

They can’t go school and their books were destroyed.

It is a big disaster.

CNN said it is a catastrophe of major proportions.

I pray that there won’t be too much major earthquake in Haiti.
