"We're suffering here, not knowing what'll happen"- Nicaragua quake victim

A strong earthquake hits southwest Nicaragua Friday, the second in two days. Footage from the first quake on Thursday shows damaged homes. Authorities say hundreds were damaged. A woman sorts through the rubble in the aftermath. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) LOCAL, MAGDALENA DIAZ, SAYING: "The first earthquake was very strong. I came inside to see what damage had been done and there was an even stronger aftershock." Earthquakes are commonplace in Nicaragua. But the loss is always personal. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) LOCAL, ALINA CASTILLO, SAYING: "We held our heads, our hair and we went up against the wall so the room didn't fall, if we didn't go to the other wall that room would fall, if we didn't go there the kitchen would fall. What does God say? We're suffering here, not knowing what'll happen." No fatalities have been reported so far.
