Are You Safe from the Earthquake
by Glenn Thomas

Just wanted to know that you are safe and that our thoughts are with the people of Ecuador.
Stan's response: Thank you Glenn. Yes, we are safe. We live well south of Cuenca in an area that is very geologically stable. That said, we did shake pretty good for more than a full minute. Fortunately, there was no damage here.
We, too, feel terrible for the thousands of people that were harmed and left with their possessions destroyed. I'm not sure how long it will take for them to recover, if ever.
