An earthquake of magnitude 6.8 struck off Chile’s coast the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said, but local authorities said there was no immediate report of any damage.
The quake, initially reported as a magnitude 6.5 but then calculated as more severe, was centered 87 miles southwest of the coastal city of Valparaiso in central Chile, the USGS said.
The quake was very shallow below the seabed.
No injuries, damage or disruptions to basic services had been reported, Chile’s National Emergency Office said in a statement.
Adding that government agencies were monitoring the situation. The navy’s information service also concluded that the earthquake did not pose a tsunami risk.
Chile, located on the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” has a long history of deadly quakes. Including an 8.8 magnitude quake in 2010 off the south-central coast that triggered a tsunami that devastated coastal towns.
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Revelation 6) foretell that seismic activity as earthquakes will happen signaling the coming end of the age.
These are signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
Preparing those Biblically born again into the Kingdom of God to be ready to escape all these things that will come to pass, in the wrath of the tribulation of Revelation prophecy that comes upon the world of disobedience, as the born again Church is appointed instead to salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.
