Earthquake update

10 Jan

We just arrived back home in Tres Rios and found the house all safe and sound, no cracks that we can see (although we’ll need to inspect during daylight).  We are very grateful that there was no injury among our missionaries or Costa Rican brothers and sisters.  The area most affected is near Poas volcano and La Paz Waterfall Gardens, both places that we take people when they visit.  Currently there are 300 tourists stuck up there since all the roads were wiped out.  Costa Rica is a volcanic land…there are 250 volcanoes here with five of them active.  Small earthquakes are quite normal, but yesterday’s was a big one and there have been over 2,000 aftershocks since then.
