The northern coast of Chile was hit hard on April 1 by a massive earthquake that triggered landslides and a tsunami, killed at least five people, and caused millions more to evacuate the area on foot. As the natural disaster ripped through the South American country, celebrities from all over sent their prayers and thoughts to the people affected.

A massive 8.2 earthquake hit just off the coast of Chile at 8:46 p.m. on April 1, and it didn’t take long for chaos to ensue. Several landslides were triggered, tsunami waves of six to seven feet set off evacuation warnings all up the country’s coast, and five people were tragically killed — two suffered heart attacks, while three were crushed, according to CNN. Now the whole world’s thoughts and prayers are with the people of Chile — that includes Hollywood, as celebs from Nicole Polizzi, who was born in Chile, to Jared Leto tweeted their emotional reactions.

8.2 Earthquake Hits Chile: Snooki & More Stars Send Prayers

Almost immediately after news broke about the earthquake, celebs took to Twitter to send their prayers, love and concern:

What a terrifying event — and such a tragedy for the entire country of Chile. But if this outpouring of support from Hollywood shows anything, it’s that celebrities will be vocal and essential in helping the South American country recover from this horrific natural disaster.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Chile during this scary time as well.
