Magnitude 6.2 Earthquake in Costa Rica

Thanks for all of your emails inquiring about our safety after the earthquake here on January 8th. Close to the epicenter, there was substantial damage multiple injuries, and two fatalities due to land slides.
The earthquake epicenter was around 25 miles from here, and we had no damage at all. We felt it of course. We had people here for lunch and were sitting at the table. The dishes didn’t really rattle. Nothing fell from bookcases or counters; both our rental house and our new house are fine and un-damaged.
