An earthquake measuring 8.2 on the Richter Scale hit the coast of Chile yesterday, killing at least five people and causing untold damage throughout the region.
With the area now on a tsunami alert, many celebrities took to Twitter last night and sent along thoughts and prayers to those affected by the natural disaster...
@MarleeMatlin: For people of Chile and Peru: Por favor, estar a salvo y seguir las instrucciones de evacuación. Be safe and follow evacuation instructions.
@Snooki: My prayers are with Chile right now. Stay safe. #BirthCountry.
