6.8 Earthquate?

A little over two hours ago Guatemala was rocked by a 6.8 earthquake. They said it was pretty bad. Those of us living in the adoption world right now are gathering information. Here's what I've found out so far.

1) Yes, pretty bad - even felt in California
2) Location about 70 miles off the pacific shore of Guatemala city
3) Some homes damaged, may have people missing, torrential rains, no reports of after effects
4) Folks in Antiuga are fine
5) Folks in Guatemala city felt it pretty bad, lots of shaing, but all are okay

My immediate thoughts are "Where are my children?" I have always just assumed that they are somewhere close to guatemala city. Let's hope so. I have asked my translator to call the foster family, but she is not optimistic that the lines will be up. we'll see.

Second thought, if the center was off the coast - in the ocean.....tsunami? So far, they are saying that is not likely.

Please join me in prayer.
