Breaking News: 7.9 Earthquake hits Northern Chile

There was an earthquake of the magnitude 7.9 today in northern Chile.
Its epicenter was 70 miles northeast of Iquique in a sparsely populated area of the Andes Mountains.
There is one death so far, and there are several injuries. There is no sign of a tsunami. This is a good thing, if there is anything good to be found.

Power and communications supplies were interrupted between the port cities near Peru.

Please pray for these people. It doesn't matter what religion you are or if you are of none. The least we can do is ask for hope, yes? Good. Have a nice day.
