Revelations 6:12 “When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood,”

Important Takeaways:

  • Morocco earthquake: at least 2,000 dead and thousands more injured
  • A powerful earthquake in Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains has killed at least 2,000 people, a death toll that is expected to rise as rescuers were struggling on Saturday to reach hard-hit remote areas.
  • The magnitude-6.8 quake is the biggest to hit the North African country in 120 years.
  • At least 2,012 people died in the quake, mostly in Marrakech and five provinces near the epicenter, Morocco’s interior ministry said. At least another 2,059 people were injured, 1,404 critically, officials said.
  • The full toll will almost certainly increase as rescuers have struggled to bypass boulder-strewn roads to the remote mountain villages that were hit hardest.
  • The World Health Organization (WHO) said more than 300,000 people had been affected by the powerful tremors throughout the country.
