Hawaii is going to get a tsunami in about an hour. My heart goes out to all the people in Chile.

It won't be bad... My dad's just mad because he can't drive to work over on Hilo side today lol. I think mainlanders are freaking out more than Hawaiians

I'm so sorry for everything that's happened in Haiti and Chile in the last months... It's absolutely horrible. The loss of life is devastating and my prayers do go out to every one affected.

These are the lyrics to the Lamb of God song, "Reclamation". I believe you'll find them fitting... Note the lines highlited in red...

"Humanity's a failed experiment
Walking the path to extinction
Spinning its wheels endlessly
Grease them with oil when you ring it out

Humanity's a failed experiment
Walking the path to extinction

The earth will shake and the waters will rise
The elements reclaim what was taken
What was taken

The skyline is set ablaze with regret
Ashes cover a falling silhouette
The city will reap what it sowed, what a night
Watching as whole city burns

Blindly consuming mass manufactured faith
Mankind is a festering parasite

Blindly consuming mass manufactured faith
Mankind is a festering parasite
Relentlessly draining it's host dry
Nailing belief to a cross of genocide

The elements reclaim what was taken
What was taken

The skyline is set ablaze with regret
Ashes cover a falling silhouette
The city will reap what it sowed, what a night
Watching as whole city burns tonight

Only after the last trace comes
And the last drip of poison
Only after the last finch is caught
Will you find that money cannot pay hatred

When everything becomes irrelevant
When the sky tears open
Fire rains down, fire rains down
The fourth world comes to an end

Push the button, light the match
Feel the bloodlines detach
Cross-hairs in the evening light
I said it once the city burns tonight
The city burns tonight, tonight
The city burns tonight

The skyline is set ablaze with regret
Ashes cover a falling silhouette
The city will reap what it sowed, what a night
Watching as whole city burns tonight"

My boyfriend is on a trip with Habitat for Humanity in Hawaii right now. I haven't been watching the news at all and he just told me about the tsunami warning. I'm so scared for him :S

I feel so sorry for everyone over in Chile and for everyone who's country is expected to be hit by a tsunami.

Hopefully enough of them will have been evacuated by the time the tsunami hits.

I am horrified by the earthquake in Chile. Though, they have better emergency responses and tools for these sorts of situations than Haiti did. That's good.

One of my really good friends lives in Honolulu. I am definitely worried. Hopefully it won't be too bad, though...

Thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected and those who have died or are bereaved. They do seem to have been better prepared than Haiti was, but I suppose that's scant consolation in times like these. 8.8 on the Richter scale...blimey.

It's so scary, what's going on in the world. My thoughts and prayers are with those in Chile and Hawaii.

That's massive. I can't imagine how awful it must be for all the people there. As for tsunamis, there has been enough warning to evacuate the at risk areas.

the tsunami wasnt as bad as they thought it would be, but some places did get hit by it, they were all ready for it so from the tsunami, i dont think many, if any, people would have been hurt because they were all warned to go to higher ground, and as of the earthquake, it's bad, but chile is build to withstand earthquakes, so the damage might be bad, but because of their structures there, not as many lives were lost as it could have been. my thoughts and prayers for everyone <3

It seems like a lot of places are getting bad weather/natural disasters this month.

Japan had a 7.0 earthquake last Saturday so I read, then Chile and all the tsunamis and France and Spain have had hurricane force winds which are heading up to South UK now.

Re: 8.8 Magnitude Quake Hits Chile - March 1st 2010, 04:30 PM

There is alot of stuff going down lately.
-Haiti EQ
-Japan EQ
-Chilli EQ
-Tsunami warnings and advisories.
I don't know if I'm right but the EQ in japan and the one in Chili happened within 2 days of eachother? I think. Not sure.

Anyways. Point being. I'm sad to say that I don't think these natural disasters are going to end soon. I agree, mother naure is pissed off. I think there is going to be more suprises to come..

It's so sad. Especially the third world countries.
I heard it was like the 5th biggest earthquake ever recorded or something.
