The Earth Moved

Last night's 7.1 earthquake off the coast of Honduras was pretty darned close to us. Several reports from Dangriga, PG and Placencia show that there was structural damage, power and water outages, and the water tank was knocked to the ground in Independence village.

We felt nothing, (although I did have some weird dreams last night), but people situated further away from the Sea did experience tremors. About four inches of water splashed out of Jeannie's pool, and the BYC pool is very low as well. The worst of it was that there was a tsunami warning out for about a half hour.

Except for some pictures hanging sideways on the walls this morning, we haven't noticed anything else yet.

Thanks to everyone who checked up on us!
