6.3-6.7 Magnitude Earthquake, Christchurch, NZ.

I hear there has been a fear of loss of life from an earthquake centered near kiwi41's stompin' ground in New Zealand. Around lunchtime today.

Hoping you and yours are okay kiwi41?
Keep us posted if you can kiwi, thanks.

Hope Phil and his family are ok. Earthquakes are no fun at all.

Yep and she had a exam set for middle of Christchurch today, have txt her from my cell she is all good and if things get bad she can stay with us as we only 100 miles south of Christchurch. Am at work and all my computer monitors were shaking, had to stop some scaffolders working for the day after some bad aftershocks.

The quake is more serious than the 7.1 that happened a few months ago as it is only 5 km deep or 3 mile deep and only 10 km or 6 miles from Christchurch.

Correct

This one isn't as strong as the last one, but was closer to the surface and I think close to the city centre.

Just reading the news at this source

It seems a building has collapsed on a bus, other buildings on smaller buildings, and some of the buildings damaged last year have collapsed.

Last time it was the middle of the night, so most people were in single story buildings.

This time it was 1 pm so people were at work, shopping, etc.

Workers will have been in warehouses near racking 30' + which shed pallets, etc in Sept 2010.

Keeping our fingers crossed for all concerned.

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.

Thanks Guys and thanks Phil.

Was in meeting and just saw the message from daughter an hour ago. She is safe and moved out with a friend, as her block is 4 storey high. Right now she is safe and have been in touch with Phil.

My prayers to all concern and hope healing will be fast.

God Bless ALL.

The quake caused 30 millions tons to break off the Tasman Glacier. Current confirmed death toll is 65

Thanks for all the support, my eldest son and sister live in Christchurch but are alright. Have a good friend who is a cop and trained in search/rescue who is leaving to go to CHCH for a few days to help identify dead bodies.
