Earthquake Damage Report, part 3

A mother, with six children (and no father in the home) lived in this tiny house, which was totally destroyed in the earthquake, and is currently being torn down. This woman has no resources with which to rebuild, and she and her children are currently squeezed in with relatives in their home.

This house, oddly enough, lost both of its short end walls, while the longer walls remained standing. This is one of the structures which will have to be torn down and rebuilt from the ground up - hopefully with a cement foundation this time!
