Remember when earthquakes were rare»?
I’ve been avoiding news stories regarding the recent earthquake in Chile. I’ve been nervous about being shocked. I don’t like the idea of vulture blogging. I’m saddened more than 300 people died and feel guilty for feeling relief because the toll was not higher.
The pictures below speak for themselves». I’m curious about the buildings that remain standing in the first two pictures.
