Winfrey's Hawaiian Home Caught In Earthquake Shaker
Oprah Winfrey's holiday home on Maui, Hawaii, shook off the worst of an earthquake on Sunday (15OCT06) - and is still standing. The talk show queen admits she lost a few keepsakes in the island rumble, which measured 6.7 on the Richter scale. Winfrey's mansion is just 80 miles (130 kilometres) from the epicentre of the quake on Hawaii's main island. She says, "All the vases broken, there were books falling off the shelves, but there was no structural damage and nobody (was) hurt... A lot of my neighbours had a lot of serious damage."
