MrNumbers,
I hope that all your friends and family are safe...

It must be a horror for the people who lost someone in the collapsed store...

Yes, all my family, friends and colleagues are safe. This supermarket is on the other end of the city.
We all are shocked with this tragedy. For now 38 people are dead. It is the biggest tragedy in last 20 years.

One of my colleagues was extremely lucky: he lives with his family in 50 meters of that store. In that day his wife was late on work, but he himself was near the store just 10 minutes before collapse and just decided NOT going in and visit a supermarket later ("it was too crowed", he said). This decision, probably, saved his life.

Hi MrNumbers,
I am glad to hear that no one from your people is hurt...

And really your colleague has a great "guardian angel"...

54 people dead and only 7 missing. But official say that these 7 are not related with this tragedy: they had searched every square meter and hadn't found any more. It is promised that the count will not increase.

MrNumbers,
my English is not so good for saying the right words for "How to feel" (It's easier for me to write down some rule clarifications).

But I offer to you and your people in Latvia condolences...

Thank you, kettlefish, from all Latvian people.

The newest information from Latvian police: all 7 missing persons were found safe and sound. As expected, they were NOT related to this tragedy.
