Terror quake rocks Trinidad: a warning for the people

Last evening, a 6.9 magnitude earthquake rocked Trinidad sending people scampering out of buildings and houses and calling upon the name of the Lord. Venezuela and Grenada were also affected. It was the hardest earthquake we’ve ever experienced lasting over a minute.ย 

The house SHOOK so hard, I thought that it was going to rend in half. The windows rattled as if they’ll fall from their hinges and the floors felt as if it was raising up. We thought it wasn’t going to stop, but I was not afraid for I know God was with us. Traffic lights went down, the electricity went out in many areas including ours and some buildings suffered cracks. The aftershock came in early this morning, but it was not bad.ย 

It could’ve been worse.

Look at these stats:ย 

^ 21 August 2018: 0 people killed after a 6.9 earthquake hit Trinidad & Tobago. Also, a 7.3 hit Venezuela and there were no reports of death or injuries. Guyana felt the earth tremor.

^ 5 August 2018: 460 people killed after a 6.9 magnitude earthquake hitย the Indonesian island of Lombok.

^ 20 April 2013: 160 people killed andย 5,700 in China’s rural south-western Sichuan province after a 6.6 earthquake.

^ 22 February 2011: more than 160 people killed inย the New Zealand city of Christchurch after a 6.3 earthquake.

^ 14 April 2010: 400 people died after aย 6.9 earthquake strikes western China’s Qinghai province.

^ 12 January 2010:ย 230,000 people diedย in and around the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince after a 7.0 earthquake.

^ย 7 December 1988: 25,000 people die inย north-west Armenia after a 6.9 earthquake.

^ 18 April 1906: 3000 people die after a 7.9 earthquake strikes San Francisco from the collapsing buildings or the subsequent fire which lasted for several days. It was one of the worst and deadliest earthquakes in the history of the USA.

We should be thankful and take it as a warning, but people here are going “God is really a Trini.” He isn’t. The next time an earthquake of that magnitude hit T&T, I don’t think we’re going to be so “lucky”. God is not a nation’s mascot. He is not a Trini. He is Alpha and Omega. And this was a warning call which many of us won’t heed because “God is a Trini”.

  1. Wow; I’m so glad that you are okay and that there were no fatalities! โค

    I agree with you about being thankful and taking it as a warning. After all, โ€œFor nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will also be famines. These things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.โ€ (Mark 13:8, NASB) And after looking at those stats… I had no idea there had been so many big ones since the beginning of 1900. O.O

    1. Thank you, Grace. I’m so grateful to God always.

      Amen! These are the signs that we should heed instead of making light of the situation. Yes, there have been a lot of big ones since then.
