It’s 1 week since the #SurfsideCollapse
While yesterday was a “slower” day, rescue / recovery work had been halted due to unsafe conditions, I had time to reflect on the events that’ve transpired.
It’s hard to put into words what the families of those missing are going thru
Waiting to hear news, anything

We who were in Christchurch, NZ on 2/22/2011 have been through something similar. 115 people died in an earthquake-caused building collapse here.

We send our love.

The earthquake caused PTSD among thousands of people, incl. me. There were 300k people in the city, & countless others closely linked. ImageImage
