A powerful M6.4 earthquake struck in northwestern Argentina, 29 km WSW of Pocito, near the border with central Chile late Monday, January 18, 2021, shaking people in parts of both countries.

The strong jolt struck at a depth of 20 kilometers (about 12 miles), according to USGS. The quake was followed by a series of 6 aftershocks, ranging between M5.3 and M4.3.

This is the second strong quake to hit the region within a week, and the third within 20 days to hit Argentina.

Officials and media in Argentina reported about damaged buildings, road fissures, and power outages. However, there were no indications of injuries. Four people had to be evacuated from their homes in the town of Zonda.

Strong movement was felt in Chile’s capital, Santiago, which is about 300 kilometres (186 miles) from the area hit by the quake. A M6.4 earthquake killed more than 70 people in Sulawesi, Indonesia, 5 days ago. Have a prayer for them!

  1. Well, maybe God is pissed off about all the cheering for legalizing abortion/molech sacrifices?

    For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
