I dont know if you've seen whats happend in Christchurch yet, but its pretty devestating. They've been plagued by earthquakes for the last few months, and the most recent one, though not the most powerful, has been the deadliest.
There are reports of people still trapped under the rubble, and they're estimating the death toll to be around 200. currently its at 63.
At least 20 people were believed to be still trapped last night inside the collapsed four-level Pyne Gould building. Among them was Australian Anne Vos, who told the Seven Network by mobile phone she was stuck under her desk in the dark with an injured hand.
She said she could occasionally hear her trapped co-workers calling out for help. ''I can't see them, I'm trapped under here and I have no idea what's happening,'' she said.
Yesterday's quake was smaller in magnitude than the 7.1 quake that hit the region last September, but far more damaging because the epicentre was nearer to the city centre - about 10 kilometres away at Lyttleton - and just five kilometres below the surface. September's was about 30 kilometres below.
People have been using 4WD's as ambulances to get the injured to hospitals.
I actually have a fair few family members who live in Christchurch. They've lost their houses, but at least they are ok.
