I decided to go out from the city on an open field of wheat that is no
longer in use, It was me and my son Kevin KJ6DDS, I just worked some
stations on AO-27 pass at 2045z, and I let Kevin use the station for the
last half of the pass, he was so exited he worked seven different station
and a new record for him, after we finish load the station we went back home
and picked up the rest of the family and hit food 4 less, we were
just across the cash register when a terrible 7.2 earthquake shake DM22 it
lasted for about 2 to 3 minutes, it was people running all over the parking
lot and cars speeding up, no power and no signals on the streets and when we
arrived home all people were outside. after that and by the time I'm writing
this message there has been 162 more ranging from 2.7 to 5.1, and they has
been more then 200 on the whole day. we got our power back but we think we
are not sleeping tonight, I talk to all my friends here over our local EOC
freq and everyone is ok, our death toll is only two people and around 100
injured, which is nothing compared with Haiti, we have several material
damages but we hope to recover soon.

73 to all and hope to catch you on the sats soon!!!!
