Seems like it keeps growing... one day we heard there were 200 and the next day it as 617, now it is over a thousand and that may not be the end. I know I just found a crack at my house and I'm located fifteen miles away from the epicenter less than ten miles as the crow flies. It is a small hairline crack but it wasn't there before the quake.
Some of the damage is severe but most of the damage seems to be fallen fireplaces, in some cases fireplaces that should have been removed after the quake of 2000 per one of the victims.
We are actually helping people now and it feels great. We are anxious to get the next one going to help more people. We now have just over 200 that we are following up with to see what can be done for each one on an individual basis. That is still only about 20% of the total.
It should also be noted that only a small percentage carried earthquake insurance... Californian's as a group don't see themselves being victims of an earthquake. One friend of mine had guests visiting from Chicago when the earthquake hit and woke them all up... they asked "Does this happen regularly?". She laughed and said something like "we have fires sometimes". I don't know if those visitors will venture to CA again any time soon.
