Okay me first,

When the kids got out of the elevator why didn't they take the stair case down instead of running to the window ledge and calling for help?

I think it's been on a couple of times since I've posted. If you've never tried to think something like this through it would be a good one to watch. Otherwise you'll find yourself saying, "you're kidding?"

An example, a cute gal was in her blacked out apartment building. She heard some noise coming from the stairs so she went to check it out - wrong answer.

don't they always do that though?  that's what makes for a good 'B' horror movie!

I read One Second After when it came out.  it was not a literary masterpiece, but it was a very good read.  have to admit, there were things in there that i had not though of.  + it sounded like my little town.

My (former) supervisor was raised up around that neck of the woods, Black Mountain, NC if I remember right. I been aiming to buy that book and give it to her.
