Woke this morning to hear the terrible news of the earthquake. I have a friend who lives outside Christchurch, there house has been wrecked but thankfully they are not hurt.
Hope everything is ok with you and your family. Think i can speak for all the other members by saying we are all thinking about you and your fellow country men in these tough times.

Fortunately Auckland has been unscathed by the quake. Shortly after the quake the cell network became overloaded even in Auckland and calls were being cut off or unable to be made. I was getting quite annoyed but hadn't heard the news, felt a bit different once i had.
I had recently priced a job in Christchurch, haven't bother to ask if it is going ahead.
I don't have family in Christchurch but have a few friends down that way, there's not much one can do except wait and see how it all pans out. The damage is quite unreal, you may have seen a news story about a lady who was on the 5th floor of the Canterbury TV building, after the quake and the building had collapsed she found herself on the ground floor and just walked out, one of the lucky ones. The death toll was up to 75 with 300 still missing last report I saw.
Thanks all for your thoughts.
