We didn't know, ah, what the on- the only com- communications we had was by telephone, because I, we were afraid to get out to try to drive to, ah, to get to the, ah, ah, to one another, so we just had to, to communicate by telephone and, ah, we would find out then, oh, well this store just, ah, they just burnt that store, ah, that block just went out and they said it started to, it, it spread to somewhere else and that, that was the line of communication that was going on between people, I think, we were using the, the telephone as our, ah, our, our contact point--that's how we kept in communication, that's how we knew what was going on.
