4.9-magnitude earthquake in Peru kills at least 8, damages 300 homes

September 2014 PERU At least eight people are dead, five injured and 300 homes damaged after a shallow 4.9-magnitude earthquake rocked a remote village in Peru on Sunday, according to Diario Correo. Most of the victims were killed after their crudely constructed homes collapsed, the Associated Press reports. Peru’s President Ollanta Humala declared a state of emergency for 90 days and stated it would be extended if needed. The quake was centered 25 miles southeast of Cuzco in the farming town of Misca in the Paruro region and was a relatively shallow five miles deep. Spanish-Language news site El Comercio reports that four of the dead are children, including a three-month-old baby. Landslides in the area have made it difficult for rescue personnel to reach those affected. El Comercio reports that nearly 45% of the homes in the village have been destroyed and power has been knocked out. Displaced residents were moved to a local soccer field for safety, according to RPP Noticias. –Weather

    I know that this is a 4.9, but the ring of fire has really been active for a while.
    My comment is the reports coming out of California regarding The Long Valley Caldera in which well over 1,000 reported seismic earthquake swarms recently and if this would have any affect on that area. I think there was a report 4.4 or two out of central California last week also.
    I think everybody is expecting something from that area.

    In an off-post comment…………Someone made the comment that it was interesting that after the black mass in Oklahoma, that this beheading occurred and then 10 minutes from the location of the mass, 4 female students were killed in a tragic accident and most of these female students had been attending the same school and playing baseball together since they were 7 or 8 years old.
    Now, satan worshipers are wanting or is going to hand out material in Florida schools.
    No connection? As the country drifts, is God going to remove his hedge of protection?
    You be the judge

      No more Lord’s Prayer in schools, no more Ten Commandments in our justice buildings, over 2000 abortions in North America a day, our political figures going to Bohemian Grove to worship Molech (Satan) child sacrifices, which is abortion by us, same thing…the hedge of protection already has been removed..Sept 11, 2001 we witnessed this.
