(SOUNDBITE) (English) FIRST GRADE TEACHER WAYNEL MAYES SAYING:
"I turned around and looked at my room and I didn't know quite what to do but I knew that I had to do something more than I had ever practiced before. I told the students I needed their help to move the desks to the wall. And the children asked why and I said we're going to play a game."
Around 13,000 homes were also destroyed.
