Sister Bethany Crowley of Clinton, Utah, was sitting at her desk in the Philippines studying her scriptures on Tuesday morning when the LDS Church missionary felt a giant truck passing by her apartment.
Then she realized it wasn't a truck. It was a major earthquake.
"Doorways!" she yelled to her companion as she flipped over her chair and ran. The two young women stood in the doorways of their apartment in Cebu City watching a nearby grocery store sway from the shock of the 7.2-magnitude earthquake centered on Bohol Island, an area where Sister Crowley served earlier this year.
