Early Morning Earthquake Felt In Saint Lucia

An early morning earthquake rattled some parts of Saint Lucia on Sunday, with the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) disclosing that people in the North of the Island reported feeling the effects of the magnitude 4.0 event at 4:31 am.

Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre wrote about the quake on his official Facebook page.

“I know that many of us felt the earth trembling this morning. Some may have been fearful but for me it was a good time for reflection and prayer. There are so many things that seek to discourage us, but also, many things which we can praise our God for,” Pierre wrote on his official Facebook page.

He also quoted from the scriptures:

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:7 NIV

“This morning, I challenge you to sing praises for all the good things in your life whilst we work towards all the things that we desire and need for ourselves and our country,” the Saint Lucia Prime Minister stated.

  1. For the waywardness of the simple will
    kill them
    and the complacency of the ? will
    destroy them ;
    but whoever listens to me will live in
    saftey
    and be at ease, whithout fear or harm.

    Apply your heart in understanding,and search
    for it as hidden treasure
    and find knowledge of God ; for the Lord
    gives wisdom,and from his mouth come
    knowledge and understanding ;
    and holds Victory in store for the upright.
    He is a shield to those whose walk is
    blameless !
    Then you will understand what is right
    and just
    and fair_ every good path.
    For wisdom will enter your heart
    and knowledge will be pleasant to your
    soul.
    Discretion will protect you,
    and understanding will guard you.

  2. Have no fear of sudden disaster
    or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
    for the Lord will be your confidence
    and will keep your foot from beign
    snared.
    The Lord’s curse is on the house of the
    wicked
    but he bless the home of the
    righteous,
    and mocks proud mockers
    but gives grace to the humble.

  3. Yes keep praying…prayer will save you…and when disaster strikes the next level of excuse is god knows best, he does what he wants… ridiculous, superstitious, wishful thinking, poor sense of reasoning, myopic and down right a lack of or rather total absence of logic…but keep praying for sky god to save you…

  4. Pierre do not put the Bible in your nonsense..you are part of the problem st lucia facing right now..dividing the people lying to our people pjp you will be the worst pm of st lucia

  5. The natural earthquake we have no control over – but the political quakes, on either side, we have the power to do something. Phil my dear friend, keep praying, if you do with an honest heart, the Lord will help – in what way, I don’t know, but keep looking over your shoulders, pray a special prayer for the goodwill of the nation. I don’t trust this pompous man too close to you. We need to protect the integrity – or whatever is left – of this Little shaky Rock in the Ocean. FATHER GOD, HELP MY PEOPLE AT A TIME SUCH AS THIS, LORD COVID-19 IS DEVASTATING THE VERY CORE OF OUR BEING, THIS INDEED IS A WAKEUP CALL SO I ASK MY PEOPLE, RIGHT THERE IN YOUR HOME, AS ITS WRITTEN,
    ISAIAH 26::20. come my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee; hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

  6. @ Reverse I worry about morons like you. You mean you don’t erven know that a man can be religious and still be evil. Being religious does not mean you are spiritual and doing the right things. Now idiot, @ Reverse, based on your claim about good and evil, tell me – when SLP lost in 1964, 1969, 1974, 1982, 1987, 1992, 2006 and 2016 was it because UWP was good and the SLP was evil? When Lansiquot was defeating Pip was it because Pip was evil? Pauline Prospere and Ferdinand lost in the last election, must I conclude based on your point that they are evil? You all hacks must put some sense in you all head and not stuff it with sh^t.
    and @ Joe Franco, nobody here is saying your nonsense so get lost with your moronic interpretation. Your silly attempt at sarcasm did not work. Get lost

  7. Good always defeats evil in any fight . I always understood Pierre to be very religious long before last elections. Check some of yourselves.

  8. Wow. My prime minister. Maybe be you were thinking an earthquake being a good thing so it can swallow you away from us

  9. So Pierre is doing such a bad job as Prime Minister that it appears that he wants to try his hands at religion. I suggest that he makes the transition quickly. But wait, if making the transition will allow Hilaire to take over (which will be a curse upon the land), then hold on still and just be mediocre at both.

  10. 100s of Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions happen around the world everyday and has happened since the world was born. We shouldn’t be afraid of things outside of our control. We should be worried about the politicians and leaders responsible for our livelihood.

  11. I hate to see politicians quote God when they clearly use and rob deserving, hard working people of what is theirs in favor of their undeserving friends! Hypocrites!
