WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A magnitude 7.4 earthquake struck southwestern Pakistan, the U.S. Geological Survey reported on Tuesday.

It said the quake was very shallow at a depth of 10 km (6.3 miles). It struck 55 km (34 miles) west of Dalbandin at 1:23 a.m. local time on Wednesday (2023 GMT on Tuesday).

There was no immediate report of damage from the area.

The Pacific Tsunami Center said the onshore quake had not triggered a tsunami in the Indian Ocean.

A major quake of this magnitude is capable of causing widespread and heavy damage.

On October 8, 2005, a 7.6 magnitude quake 95 km (60 miles) northeast of the Pakistani capital Islamabad killed over 70,000 people.

Maybe God is sending a message:

“Release Asia Bibi or the next one is a perfect 10!”

Too bad. A magnitude 10 would have been better.

It might have shaken some sense into the bastards.

A 7.2 in a region of structures with little or no reinforcement is more like a 9 in a developed area with earthquake damage mitigation in place.

This may well have leveled the structures in the area.

And hopefully closed the correct caves too!
The bible says Israel will be protected...

My first thought when I heard this was I hoping it was not really an earthquake, but man made ground movement from a couple BIG bunker busters... then I woke up and remembered who our current president is.

This particular report had not been posted - and you didn't use the real title from Yahoo...(often enough to have it pulled) but, I'm leaving it in place.

Why is it trolling to point out that the US can’t afford to send much in the way of aid?

I remember how Pakistani Air Force C-130 crews used to drop into Dover AFB Del. They usually sent them downtown to the Howard Johnson’s Hotel on route 113. (I was aircrew just going through Dover all the time and was out of Travis AFB in California). For some reason, a really foul smell came from the suite of rooms they gave them on the third floor of the Ho’Jo’s. The smell never left. It was ALWAYS there and it stunk horribly. Maybe they stashed something dead in there, I don’t know.

Satan is a pawn that God moves around on His chess board. Per the book of Job he doesn't make a move without The LORD allowing it. He serves the purposes of God who is sifting His wheat from the chaff.
