The aftermath of the 7.6-magnitude earthquake, which occurred on Wednesday, Sept. 5, at 8:42 a.m., has everyone on edge, wondering when the next big one will strike. La Paz Community School had very little damage compared to the Country Day School (CDS), whose classroom ceilings came down.
La Paz was opened the next day and CDS was closed for the remainder of the week for repairs, but classes started back on Monday, Sept. 9, as scheduled. Many local businesses suffered damage but none had to close down.
The Public Works and Transport Ministry made a declaration, unbeknownst to many, to take down all public or business signage not on private property. This action started on Sept. 11, and no matter what size the signs were, they were cut down and tossed in the back of the truck, to the dismay of many who knew nothing about this.
Many locals were contacted by phone when the news spread, so they would have time to save their signs. Signs are expensive, and to have them removed without notice was problematic.
