Chile Toll at 700 - 2 Million Are Displaced After Earthquake by New York Times

In this article it talks about how over 700 people have been killed by the earthquake in Chile. Millions of Chile citizens have been displaced from their homes. Also, American citizens who have vacationed in Chile are stuck, in potential danger, and have no way to get back home. Probably one of the greatest earthquakes Chile has ever seen, with a magnitude of 8.8 enough for Brazil to feel it. This is important to the world because natural disasters are happening all around the world which destroys buildings and homes which leaves citizens unemployed and homeless. This is important to America because it could potentially hurt the United States economy. With the American economy hurt, that leaves other nations with an injured economy as well. This is also important to people because it could affect everyone's lives.
