6.7 magnitude earthquake shakes northern Argentine capital

September 2, 2011 Buenos Aires – A magnitude- 6.7 earthquake has struck north-central Argentina, shaking things up enough to make people evacuate some buildings in the capital hundreds of miles (kilometers) away. The epicenter was 805 km (500 miles) NNW of BUENOS AIRES, D.F., Argentina. The U.S. Geological Service says the quake’s epicenter was 80 miles (130 kilometers) southeast of Santiago del Estero, a provincial capital of 250,000 people and the 12th-largest city in Argentina. It was centered deep underground, nearly 400 miles (600 kilometers) below the surface, where quakes generally cause less damage. The shaking prompted people to spill out of the San Isidro courts building in Buenos Aires province Friday morning. –Kansas City.com

    Alvin, so many shakings (geological, economic and financial, social, etc) going on around the world, maybe the end is coming before 2012. The Bible and the Mayan prophecies are true.


    • We live in unprecedented times and are surrounded by both extraordinary circumstance and opportunities. Never before in human history have we seen such ubiquitous change sweeping across the planet, nature, societies, and people. The earth is in travail, as a woman is with child, and nature along is determining the speed and course of these events. The rapidity, at which they are unfolding, will probably surprise us all in the end.

      peace and blessings,


    • It’s a lot like birth pains, and like Alvin says “as a woman is with child”. Unfortunately, I don’t believe we have seen the worst part yet. Personally, I don’t want to see what’s coming, but I have faith that the Lord will sustain me.

      Be blessed and Maranatha
