Earthquake in Christchurch

Another earthquake hit Christchurch this morning around 12.50pm lots of damage, reports of fatalities... spent most of lunch and early afternoon on phone to family in the city who are thankfully all ok. Thoughts go out to everyone else in the city whose families werent so lucky.

2nd time in 6 months, not sure how much of this my whanau down there can take.

Glad to hear everyone is okay John.

Like most people I'm stunned by the event. Managed to contact most of the gamers I know down there and they are all okay.

Was really sorry to read about this catastrophe in the papers; glad that your family are all okey!

Let's hope the rescue workers are able to keep the death toll from rising any further, and that this is the last earthquake Christchurch will experience for the next couple of thousand years.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Hard knowing people down there and not being able to do anything about it
