Oh, darling, I can create earthquakes in your heart. I can bring magnitudes of tsunamis; (heart/love)aches in seismic waves. I’m the break in the ground, under your feet, tectonic plates, inside your soul; I am the fault. I do not give warnings early enough, and I definitely provide no time for escape.
Dear followers, I’m from Ecuador, and we just have had on Saturday a major earthquake that measured 7,8.
The coast is the most affected region of my country, we are not completely ready for situations like this, is hard to see how many people have died (500 so far) and so many are trapped and there are almost 4000 people injured.
It’s difficult to find a way to keep working normally in the cities that haven’t been that affected, so that’s why and if you really can, try to go to Ecuador’s embassy in your country and ask how can you help, we need water, food and medicine as priority.
Thank you so much.
Ecuadorian children affected by the earthquake desperately need your help! They are among the the most vulnerable, both physically and psychologically. Please donate to UNICEF.
Haitian activists protested outside of the Clinton Foundation in New York over the loss of “billions of dollars” that was meant to help rebuild after the devastating 2010 earthquake.
The activists are claiming the money was stolen through the Haiti Reconstruction Commission that was headed by Bill Clinton. In January 2015, the Clinton Foundation was the target of protests for wasting more than $10 billion and awarding contracts to non-Haitian companies.
The activists also said Haiti as a cover for foreign governments to funnel kickbacks of hundreds of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. They believe that this was done for favors that Hillary was doing for the foreign governments while she was Secretary of State.
“We are telling the world of the crimes that Bill and Hillary Clinton are responsible for in Haiti,” said Dhoud Andre of the Committee Against Dictatorship in Haiti. “And we are telling the American people that the over 32,000 emails that Hillary Clinton said she deleted have evidence of the crimes they have committed.”
Five years later, a majority of Haiti is still in disrepair. The capital’s main hospital has yet to be finished, and there is a major rise of cholera. The Clinton Foundation said progress is being made especially in Haiti’s economic and tourist industries.
4/14/16 - 6.4 Earthquake - Kumamoto, Kyushu, Japan: Japan's largest earthquake since 2011! #PrayforJapan
Hey guys, really quickly send positive vibrations/prayers/etc to Japan. A 6.4 earthquake struck there today (4/15 in Japan), buildings have fallen and some lives lost. Please help spread the word.
After Fukushima’s nuclear disaster,
which was caused by the earthquake and
tsunami that struck Japan in 2011,
Naoto Matsumura returned to live in the
exclusion zone so he could take care of
the cows, chickens, ostriches, dogs, cats,
pony, and other animals that were left
behind when their owners fled. Despite
daily exposure to radiation, he and the
animals continue to survive together. SourceSource 2
Kuyushu has been hit with a series of large quakes since the shindo 7 quake on Friday evening (there have been several registering shindo 5 or above in the last 24hrs).The nature of aftershocks means that people in Kyushu are suffering through smaller, quakes every 30m or so today. There is a significant risk of damaged buildings collapsing during aftershocks, so people are not able to relax, as they are not safe yet, and many have been evacuated.
Rescue attempts are underway and emergency services are doing their best to get to anyone under the rubble. This eight month old baby girl was pulled from a collapsed building early on Friday morning after the first quake struck. Others have sadly lost their lives.
Please do whatever you can to support relief efforts by donating and signal boosting this post. Thank you.
At least 120 people have been killed and 368 injured. An 18-month-old baby found dead; his parents died together while hugging each other. Amatrice ‘is no more,’ says mayor. Locals in Accumoli described working furiously to free two people trapped in a collapsed home, moving stone by stone with their hands.
