SOUNDBITE: Teacher Carmen Madrigal (Spanish) "The movement, it was during recess. We started sounding an alarm we have and the children kept asking whether it was really happening and I said 'Yes, it's happening.' We managed to evacuate the whole school in about five minutes." The U.S. Geological Survey said the epicenter of the quake was about 87 miles outside of San Jose - but, it was felt as far away as Nicaragua and Panama.
