BARBIEVILLE SHAKES WITH QUAKE
Barbieville experienced an Earthquake last week. It was said to reach a 7.0 on the Richter scale....Only the southern part of Barbieville was affected. The northern half of the island was untouched.
Minor injuries were reported. Ken was trapped under a larger stove and cabinet for 6 hours that had broken loose during the quake. Flavo girl was taken to the hospital and released that same evening. She sustained a minor concussion and broken left wrist after falling 25 feet from a balcony at her home.
Aftershocks were minimal and no further damage was reported. Clean up crews are already tearing through the remains of the wreckage. Nancy White, head of Barbieville Disaster Relief, says the damaged areas should be cleaned up and back to normal within the month.
Susan York, head of Barbieville Resort Safety said of the quake, " Thank God nobody was seriously injured. We ( Rescue crews) offered our support to Mrs. White but she declined saying she had everything under control."
Mrs. White also said she would not be asking President Bush to declare the southern half of Barbieville a disaster area. "We ( The Barbieville Planning Commission) have contingincy plans in place for things like this. Barbieville is pretty self-sufficient and there really isn't too much damage. Funds to clean up the mess will be taken from the treasury."
