“The West Sumatran capital, Padang, with about a million residents, is near the epicenter.

“CNN’s Arwa Damon spoke with a few dozen survivors from these villages in the area, most of whom only made it through because they weren’t home during the quake. They remained huddled together in a tent, in shock over what had happened.”
