No earthquakes here

Several people have asked us if we are OK after the 8.8-magnitude earthquake that hit Chile during the night.

We’re on opposite ends of the continent from the earthquake, something like the distance between California and St. Louis.

The earthquake was between Concepcion and Santiago, in the lower left of the map above; we live east of Sao Paulo, in the upper right.

We felt nothing, though we might have slept through some tremors.

It appears that only some who live in high buildings felt it here in SJCampos, according to one news report. Seems the tremors were moderate in the capital about 65-70 miles to the west of us.

We pray for the victims and families of the deceased in the aftermath of the earthquake. We’re seeking news of the churches there as well as channels for aid to share with the brotherhood.

  1. In 1985, people asked me if I wasn’t afraid to go to Argentina after the Mexico City earthquake. I tried to point out that Texas is MUCH closer to Mexico than Argentina is.

  2. Something once happened, either around the Amazon or maybe in Venezuela, don’t remember, and people asked me if we were OK. I told them the same thing, you’re closer to it than we are!

  3. We are so glad you guy are fine and praying for those who are not.

What do you think?
