Others, however, were struck by how different it was from the drill. Cacelin noted there was no 30-second warning before the temblor to give them time to gather their composure and listen for instructions. Instead of hiding under desks, Cacelin said people ran for the doors, including her.
When she made it outside, instead of laughing and joking, people were crying and desperately searching for loved ones.
“This time there was no alert, we only felt the temblor,” she wrote. “The earthquake took us by surprise.”
