It was quite a day of hearing stories of miracles that happened to people during the earthquake... of how the ground moved some three feet... how houses were tossed too and fro like paper houses... how people could not stand up because it was so violent.. the sound of the quake was like a helicopter blades coming at a distance then very loud and fast.. most people had no idea what was happening ... how just before the quake a man said he laid face down on the floor a few seconds before the quake and then the quake hit.. when he went to lift his head the cement roof was touching his head and when he tried to lift his foot up his heal touch the cement roof that came down... he was able to crawl out on his belly to safety without any injuries...

I talked with Clark today from the Peace of Mind hotel and he shared with me how when things started to move he ran out of the hotel as he was in the lobby, his wife was in their room... as she tried to run the building was swaying so violently that she fell and then things come crashing down but she was pulled from the rubble with minor injuries... the hotel came down in about 7 seconds.. pictures to follow... We will be in PAP all day tomorrow.. watch for more reports... Bob & Linda
