I predict that based on the Pacific Rim earthquakes, that a big one…or several small ones before the big one will hit the California Coast….I have been watching the “rim of fire” for the last 3 months and it appears that CA is way overdue. My prediction is that within the next 20 +/- days you will see a much larger one that hit 4 days ago. I would make vacation plans for Aridzona or further east if I live in Californication if I lived there. Fortunately, I am a Texican and this does not really concern me….

Thank goodness Chile doesn’t have any nuclear power plants…see Fukushima.

DontBeLate we do have 2 nuclear power plants on Santiago (not even the 8.8 richter earthquake of 2010 made them collapse -we DO have measures against earthquakes-)
Also this earthquake will do the “dominoe effect” on the whole Pacific Belt, Japan can be posibly affected to.

earthquakes increasing in exponential frequency was predicted in the Bible as the end of this age approaches. the earth is groaning from the effects of sin on God’s creation. these are warning signs don’t ignore them.

A few days ago in La Brea City ( located in California) residents suffered one 5.4 Earthquake. I told myself, next is Chile and I was damn right.

We have had tremor for three weeks prior to these so everyone knew it was coming and people were prepared

This is the way preparedness should be done. Bravo, Chile!

Mylena, It’s easy to “predict” things after they happen. I predicted that Duke would be upset in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

Really. I DID!

Besides, the quake happened in La Habra, and was 5.1 in magnitude.

the best thing for America to do in order to assist in this disaster would be to send millions of Democrats into the coastal sections of Chile, to use as sand bags, to protect the property and lives there.
Democrats as a group are useless and parasitic. Helping them to make a difference in this world by using them as ‘sandbags’ would give meaning to their otherwise useless and self indulgent, parasitic lifestyle!!!
Hooray for the Democrat Sandbag!!! We care about you, Chile and are sending you the best ‘sandbags’ we’ve got…brain dead and delusional, they are only good for sand bags…use them extensively, we’ve got more where those 10 million came from! and would be more than happy to put them on cargo planes and drop them from very low altitudes onto your beaches to blunt the incoming tsunami……

California was hit on March 28, Chile was hit on April 1, and Panama was hit today. The western rim of the Ring of Fire seems to be active.

Ninny, Don’t let any unrelated opportunity for an irrational partisan rant go to waste! Pathetic…just pathetic.

Perfectly descriptive screen name, btw.
