Thank goodness I'm in Auckland but I feel for those in Christchurch today. This is bad. This is really bad!

I saw that on the news and have said my prayers - the damage looked pretty bad. So glad you're safe!

The death toll's at 65 at the moment and that could rise. There are over 200 people trapped in buildings. It's just awful.

Apologies for any formatting or lack thereof. My LJ isn't working properly at the moment.

Oh God, I had no idea there could be that many. :-(

The confirmed deaths are at 65 still, but it depends on how many they've managed to rescue. Not quite the same as the Napier earthquake of 1931, but we will probably hear of more through the day.

Thanks for your thoughts my friend.

Thank you Carol. I think everyone in New Zealand is a bit shell-shocked to be honest.

My step-dad's nephew is there somewhere but I'm not sure if they've heard from him. They've been told to keep phone calls to a minimum.

My elderly great-uncle is okay though. That's a relief for Mum.
