Yep, 5.5 followed by a 6.0 was at work and all our boilers were shaking and we are about 130km south of the of centre of quake. Fasto daughter has txted my phone as she studies in CHCH and she is all good. No deaths that I know of but more damage to a already damaged CBD and 10,000 people lost power and CHCH airport evactuated. Flying out from CHCH on thursday to Malaysia so between earth quakes and big volcanic ash clouds not sure how we will go but will just carry on as per normal. Last day at work today until 11 of July so looking forward to break.
