"I am fine as is the rest of our 14 person group. I had just shut my light off last night and the shaking started around 11:20 pm. Our group left the riad (hotel) to go to big public square nearby..this the old sections of the city (16th-17th century) so quite a bit of rubble. Came back around 3 am, and our touring today was dodging closed alleyways & roads; some monuments closed due to damage. Epicenter was in rural area about 40 miles away, so likely more damage & casualties there, with areas hard to reach.
Thx for checking in!
