There were 3 shakers in Georgia here in the US. The planet is about to implode any day now. Global Compaction. The signs are all around us.

It just seems like the World is on fire at the moment. Floods in Bangladesh and now this.
They're all privately acknowledging climate change but they've put themselves in the uncomfortable position of needed to deny.

and that makes their objections completely uninformed and laughable.

Watch how easy it has become to encourage them to spew hate and racism as justification of their insane position.

California and other places in the past have had earthquakes of that magnitude, but hundreds do not die and are injured!!!

Something else is going on. This thread should be in the conspiracy board.

Prayers up for Afthanistan.

Another bunch died yesterday because of aftershocks, and since last Wednesday a total of 1,150 have died and 1,600 and counting were injured.

The country of 38 million people was already in the midst of a spiraling economic crisis that had plunged
millions deep into poverty with over a million children at risk of severe malnutrition.

Afghanistan has a Red Crescent Society that has welcomed goods and help from the International Red Cross

An aftershock shook a hard-hit area of eastern Afghanistan on Friday,​
two days after an earthquake rattled the region,​
razing hundreds of mud-brick homes and​
killing 1,150 people, according to state media.​
Pakistan’s Meteorological Department reported a 4.2 magnitude quake​
in southeastern Afghanistan that state-run Bakhtar News Agency reported​
took five more lives in hard-hit Gayan District and injured 11 people.​
The country of 38 million people was already in the midst​
of a spiraling economic crisis that had plunged millions​
deep into poverty with over a million children at risk of severe malnutrition.​
Red Cross is working behind the scenes to send food and goods to the stricken area in Afghanistan, more pictures here:

Well we've sent Red Cross and supplies to help to European distribution
to the remote region. The Taliban is ruling there now, so I don't know either,
only that the Red Crescent Society is doing all it can to get the goods to the
areas needing just about everything. In addition to the dead, one of my sources
said that 2,000 homes were totally destroyed. Not sure I got that posted, Tommy.
Sorry. But I'm praying for those who have such devastating issues with loss of
friends, family, homes, goods, everything. Some still have animals that were not
killed, and the ones who aren't injured are likely pretty busy taking care of what
little is left for them.
