That’s as reported by the country’s Prime Minister. I hope that was hyperbole.
Kind of puts our quake into a little perspective, not to minimize.
Addendum: Pat Robertson says the Earthquake was caused by a pact with the Devil.
About 10 years ago he said that Orlando, Florida might be hit by a meteor if they passed some gay rights ordinance. Some still have parties every year waiting for it to hit.

Second addendum: Limbaugh chimes in. It’s really f—-ing incredible!
Third addendum: This statement from CBN clears up any misunderstandings about Robertson’s statement.
Robertson’s comments were based “on the widely-discussed 1791 slave rebellion where the slaves allegedly made a famous pact with the devil in exchange for victory over the French. This history, combined with the horrible state of the country, has led countless scholars and religious figures over the centuries to believe the country is cursed,” the statement said.
Fourth addendum: This was posted on the KMUD programmers email list.
