Peace of Mind Hotel..

First picture is of the hotel from the back.. you can see that it is three stories...

The next picture is at the same angle taken today... you can see that you can only see two stories... the row of windows on the bottom left was where the dinning room was located.. The first level is crushed to about a foot thick..

This is a picture from the front of the hotel and then a front shot taken today...

Mr. Clark's brother said everything started to sway back and forth and then things started coming down.. It only took 7 to 10 seconds and it was flat.....

This is some 40 km. from the EPA center to the north..

We are so thankful that Clark and his wife survived.. They were both inside at the time.. Clark was in a meeting in the lobby and his wife was up in their room.. She said that when she felt things start to shake she tried to run but fell and everything came down. She was rescued with minor cuts and bruises... Unfortunately their niece was killed and a guest that was visiting just to get e-mail messages off their satellite dish was killed also.. apparently she started to run out but turned back to get her lap top and didn't make it out..... Most people had no idea what was happening... and then when it did it all happened so fast... This is where our team would have been staying two weeks later... I spoke with Clark today and he said he is going to rebuild.. There was no insurance... Take care..
