Quake hits Chile

Posted on February 28, 2010


Another devastating quake has rocked the Western Hemisphere, this time hitting the South American nation of Chile. The quake hit yesterday with a magnitude of 8.8, and Chilean President Michelle Bachalet said the death toll stood at 708 and called for calm as looters and concerns over food and water heightened tensions.

As with Haiti, please keep the good people of Chile in your thoughts, and donate time or money where appropriate.
