Re: Another earthquake hits Christchurch, New Zealand!

Horrific images coming in from tv3 from new Zealand. 65 people killed,expected to rise, rescues under the way for 200+ people still trapped in CBD buildings. 80% of the city without power.

Such a sad day for such a beautiful historic city.

The window smashed in less than two seconds after I jumped under desk, a huge pile of dust came in. I am very very very lucky, and truly love god (or whoever else is up there). This felt alot stronger than the 7.1 quake, it certainly did more damage and (at least) 65 people dead.... words just cant imagine.

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Sigh, a friend of mine was at work at the airport and texted me to say she was fine, but couldn't go back home for the moment due to all the damage
