Chile is wealthier and infinitely better prepared, with strict building codes, robust emergency response and a long history of handling seismic catastrophes. No living Haitian had experienced a quake at home when the Jan. 12 disaster crumbled their poorly constructed buildings.
Comment: K and I are almost through the Bible. Now in Revelation and soon to start over. Currently both of us are using ESV study Bibles. Great notes! If interested, there are a lot of references to earthquakes in the NT.
