Good to hear that you're all okay...and good thing your friends came to visit, as they did. Strange how things happen that way.

I had (finally!) responded last night to a message you'd left me some weeks ago...I sent it from the Newton but got several error messages afterwards, leading me to wonder if you'd even received it. I was about to send another...but I see you had much more important things happening around you!

Take care and be safe,

>The epicenter and depth was much closer and shallower this time so the shaking

>Airport closed, power down to 80% of the city; this time modern hotel buildings
>have collapsed; most historic buildings flattened.
>All children were evacuated from schools.  Fortunately no one hurt there.  All
>home safe and sound.
