Two Eugene area women who had been hiking in Nepal when the earthquake hit Saturday contacted their families early Tuesday morning. The 21-year old Thurston High grads are alive and safe.
Amber Brazil and Alicia Scroggins were hiking in Nepal's Langtang National Park when the earthquake hit. Their families were worried.
Jennifer Brazil says Amber's father got a phone call from their daughter.
Brazil: "He didn’t have a lot of information. I think she wanted to get that phone call out of the way. But they were unharmed, safe, and obviously ready to get home."
