    1. gosh my friend just came back back and told me there are casualties in another part of Bukoba town in Kashai children buried under collapsed houses... oh my God, i never expected any casualties to come from earthquakes here in Bukoba... my house was shaking vigorously but apart from one small crack in the wall and plaster falling down i didn't see any damage
