After Saturday’s 5.6-magnitude quake which sparked landslides, hundreds of Colombians gathered in temporary shelters yesterday, reluctant to return home for fear of further shake-ups, Reuters reports. Colombia’s Red Cross reported 11 deaths and 54 injuries, with some 5,000 facing damaged homes and other buildings. President Alvaro Uribe visited the hard-hit area.
“People are still really terrified about a second or third one coming,” said one resident of worst-hit Quetame. “We're trying to put up a tent for 20 people."
