It appears that earthquakes are contagious. Today was an earthquake in the Roaton area of Hondurus a 7.2 on the scale. That is a pretty big one, and I'm sure it was pretty scary for everyone there.
So far according to the news reports there have been 4 deaths reported and many homes lost. Like that country needs anymore natural disaters. I am happy to report that all the inlaws are fine, and their house sustained no damage.
My son-in-law and daughter were concerned because the houses in their parents neighborhood in Tegusegalpa were already pretty unstable because of Hurricane Mitch. It left all of the homes there on very unstable foundations and an earthquake could easily bring them down.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost loved ones and their homes.
