Late night news
The night crew in the newsroom called my home around 9 p.m. to let me know about the earthquake in Crescent City. We discussed the story, as much detail as we knew at that hour, and discussed what to move off the front page if the night crew felt the story warranted the front page. I left that decision to them to determine once they received more information. As it was, they felt comfortable with the story inside, where it played, since there were no injuries or damage to report.
