Good Luck Hawkeye! (10 days now since hearing from her, she usually posts every day!)

Still no news from Hawkeye after the catostrophic hurricane, Ian made landfall earlier this week in Hawkeye's vicinity: Hawkeye, if you are able to read this, know you are in our thoughts and prayers not just from me but the readers of TBW too. Take care dear lady!

The 6th major quake of 2020 rocks Indonesia and it's the second major quake to strike there in 24 hours after a shallow,  magnitude 6.0 Earthquake - near the north coast of Papua, Indonesia hit yesterday. 

According to USGS, the population in this region resides in structures that are vulnerable to earthquake shaking, though resistant structures exist. The predominant vulnerable building types are unreinforced brick with concrete floor and precast concrete frame with wall construction.
