  1. Some error corrections. The Police station and hospital only sustained minor damage. The south east section that was mainly residential is heavily damaged (50% of houses totally destroyed and almost all the others damaged. All schools fine though the high school may have light damage. The Mall in the centre of town is gone and the residential west of it (SW section) is heavily damaged but not as bad as the SE section. Industrial area in NE section seams mostly untouched. The churches in the SE seem to be gone.
