Chile Earthquake: Magnitude-6.8 Tremor Hits Country

The quake struck 66 miles southwest of Coquimbo on Saturday, the U.S. Geological Survey said. There were no initial reports of injuries or damage, and no tsunami warning has been issued.

A 6.0 and a 6.8 earthquake striked Chile earlier today. No injuries or damages have been reported so far. There was a warning of a small tsunami wave issued by the Chile’s navy, but it was quickly withdrawn.

The prime minister of the Commonwealth of Dominica is trotting the globe, cap in hand, begging every poor man in Asia for assistance to rebuild the infrastructure of his storm battered country. What is his development or even recovery plan for Dominica?

A few years ago, my ex-classmate was named ambassador to Chile which means that we have diplomatic relations with that country. How is the government engaging Chile? Do they really care about the safety of Dominicans? Chile has learned their lessons and are now leaders in the building of earthquake resistant structures. Why are all our engineers not learning from Chile’s lessons?
