Panic: New Massive Earthquake Rocks Southwest Pakistan, Multiple Deaths Reported


Luke 21:10-11, “Then He said to them, ‘Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven …’”

Associated Press – “A major earthquake rocked Pakistan’s southwest Saturday, sending people running into the street in panic just days after another quake in the same region killed 359 people, officials said.

The U.S. Geological Survey said on its website that a 6.8 magnitude quake was felt in Pakistan’s southwestern Baluchistan province.

The Pakistani Meteorological Department measured the earthquake at 7.2 magnitude. The department said its epicenter was located about 90 miles west of the town of Khuzdar.

There were no immediate reports of casualties, said Abdur Rasheed, the deputy commissioner of Awaran district where both quakes were centered.

There may have been little left to damage after Tuesday’s disaster. Few of the mud and homemade brick houses in the area survived the 7.7 magnitude quake that leveled houses and buried people in the rubble across the district of Awaran.

Since then tens of thousands of people have been sleeping under the open sky or tents. Rasheed said they had received reports that some homes damaged but still standing after Tuesday’s quake had collapsed Saturday.

He said they are trying to get information whether people were living in some of the partially damaged homes.

‘Today’s earthquake damaged the already damaged buildings and homes,’ he said.” Read more.

    ‘AND LIKE A GOOD NEIGHBOR’ THE USA IS THERE!

    It usually goes w/o saying that our gov’t will no doubt send millions of $$$ worth of relief shipments to these people! It happens every time!

    My only question is this: How long will it be before these same recipients of our charitable FREE love gifts turn on us and BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS THEM???

    Is that what the Bible calls “casting your pearls before swine”???
