Comment on this Story

Still very much in the minds of Lorquinos and evidence of the devastating double earthquakes all around, this mornings earth tremor triggered memories of the fear, destruction and panic experienced that tragic day back in 2011. Whilst today's tremor was not physically felt, news of it spread like an out of control wild fire throughout the city. La Viña, widely considered as ground zero where the most destruction occurred, is still undergoing major reconstruction and many displaced by the events of that day are still situated in temporary accommodation. The healing process has begun and in most cases has run its course, but it's evident that Lorquinos will always be nervous of any earth movements for a longtime to come.
