    At least six people have been killed after a huge earthquake struck the Chilean coast, causing buildings to collapse in the capital Santiago and triggering a tsunami. Skip related content


    The quake, which measured 8.8 on the Richter scale, shook the city for about a minute and a half.

    There were also power cuts in the capital, which is about 200 miles away from the quake's epicentre.

    That was close to the town of Maule, and happened at a depth of 36.9 miles. ... http://uk.news.yahoo.com/5/20100227/...s-3fd0ae9.html

    Are the MSM obsessing of this? Are there calls for mass relief?
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    I'm surprised to hear that tone, for some reason. Disasters don't matter as long as it's no one you know?

    I'm watching the coverage of this on Fox. How awful. :(

    They are saying that the tsunami will hit Hawaii around 3:00 pm EST.

    And Pat Robertson will be explaining why the people of Chile "deserved" it shortly.

    Seriously though, I'm praying the tsunami is not as bad as it sounds.
