Earthquake 1999 - Norm's House

This photo shows Norman Shaw's house after the quake. The neighbor's concrete wall fell to the left, collapsing the manaca building.

 

July 11, 1999 8:14 AM CST an M6.7 quake occurred along the Motagua fault 20 miles east of the river mouth at a depth of six miles. Shaking in Rio Dulce was strong and considerable damage occurred. I'm sorry I don't have larger and better photos because the originals were lost.
