THERE SHALL BE EARTHQUAKES! Powerful 7.8 earthquake rocks western Pakistan, killing at least 33

And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
Luke 21:11

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – A powerful earthquake rocked a remote part of western Pakistan on Tuesday, killing more than 30 people, injuring dozens and destroying rudimentary houses in the sparsely populated area, according to officials and local media.

Given the remote terrain, officials were bracing for a higher death toll. The United States Geological Survey issued a "red" alert, which means that fatalities could exceed 1,000 and damages cost more than $1 billion.

USGS said the magnitude 7.8 quake struck 145 miles southeast of Dalbandin, in Pakistan's earthquake-prone Baluchistan province bordering Iran.
