SANTIAGO (Reuters) – A massive magnitude-8.8 earthquake struck south-central Chile early on Saturday, killing at least 85 people, knocking down buildings, homes and hospitals, and triggering a tsunami.  http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20100227/wl_nm/us_quake_chile_21

The President of Chile declared “a state of catastrophe” according to other reports I have seen on this.  Also, the EU was the first major entity I saw that reported that it would provide assistance to Chile (though doubtless others will help).

This quake in Chile is much, much, more powerful than the one that hit Haiti (Earthquake in Haiti: The End of the World?)–though unless the situation changes, the death toll there will be much, much, less.  Those in Chile (and Haiti still as well) need our prayers.

According to the Bible, as we get closer to the end, more earthquakes are coming (Matthew 24:7; Luke 21:11; Revelation 6:14).

And in terms of magnitude, in the Book of Revelation (also called the Apocalypse) the Bible warns of a time when there will be such a massive earthquake, that every island will be moved (Revelation 6:14).
