Snooki ‘prays for Chile’
Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi has voiced her concern for the South American nation following its huge earthquake.
The former Jersey Shore star was adopted from the South American country at six months old and by Italian American parents.
In the wake of news a devastating earthquake rocked Chile, Nicole has sent well wishes to her motherland.
"My prayers are with Chile right now. Stay safe #BirthCountry." Snooki tweeted.
According to the US Geological Survey, Chile’s rumble measured 8.2 on the Richter Scale, which means its strength was less than two whole numbers from the most disastrous earthquake imaginable.
Tsunami warnings have been issued in Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama and Costa Rica as a result of the terrifying seismic shifts. Chile’s National Emergency Office requested all coastal residents to flee to higher ground so as not to get swept up in a potentially lethal wave of water.
The evacuation is being captured on social media and several images depict crowded streets of people eager to reach safety.
Thankfully Snooki is safe at home in New Jersey with fiancé Jionni LaValle and their 19-month-old son Lorenzo.
The star has been engaged to Jionni since 2012 and the couple are set to wed later on this year.
Snooki's fall wedding has a Great Gatsby theme and she is planning to ask her bridesmaids if they will accept by presenting them with a goodie bag filled with things linking to the theme.
