They came out of buildings and run to squares, parks and open spaces. Old buildings were badly damaged. At night many people were still too afraid to return to their homes. "The whole of the centre of Lorca has been seriously damaged," a delegate from the regional government of Murcia told national radio. "There are thousands of very disorientated people." A doctor told the online edition of El Pais that she and her colleagues went into the streets and treated people with serious injuries, many of them "unconscious". "The ambulances could not arrive to the city center”, he said.
