Earthquake Concerns

As the world knows there was a 7.0 earthquake in Haiti yesterday leaving thousands feared dead and many more injured. Destruction is extensive. Haiti is on half of an island in the Caribbean. The Dominican Republic is on the other half. No major damage has been reported from there.

We have good friends who are living on their sailboat in the Dominican Republic. Needless to say, we are very concerned about them. My husband sent them an e-mail this morning and we are waiting to hear back. I don’t know if the major communications disruptions on the Haiti side is affecting the Dominican Republic.

UPDATE 1/16/10

We heard from our friends. They are doing fine. They felt the earthquake and there was a 6 inch tsunami. No damage or injuries. What a relief!
