"My head hurt, my ear was cut, I was flung off the seat, couldn't hear anything and everything was quiet. That's when things started falling from the auditorium from above me, big clags of cement, dust, dirt." This is the situation Elaine Stamford found herself in on Thursday, 28 December 1989. Her workplace was crumbling around her, as the town of Newcastle suffered through the most deadly geological hazard ever to strike Australia: a 5.6 magnitude earthquake.
