Son & wife are in Nicaragua and there is no damage at her parents home in Managua. Scary, yes. No reports yet of any major damage.
As much as it takes to help.... deplete OUR FUNDS...while Looking Good!?
Do not forget the USGS ENS service.
They will send you en Email whenever there is a quake.
Thats a good sign!
I didnt get the locale in relationship to population centers.
I suspect that there may not be many living that close to the quakes epicenter

“The one that scares me is YELOWSTONE”
Yes, if that caldera blows, predictions are that it could
affect much of America, east of Yellowstone.
