New Zealand Earthquake

Hello,

I hope we can hear from any and all people living in New Zealand? The earthquake near Christchurch was very close to the surface, and there was lots of damage; and unfortunately many people have been killed.

Wow... pretty nasty...

The USGS said the latest quake was part of the "aftershock sequence" following the magnitude 7.1 earthquake on Sept. 4 last year. That quake wrecked hundreds of buildings and inflicted an estimated $3 billion in damage, but caused no deaths.

A strong aftershock in December caused further damage to buildings. The city, considered a tourist center, was still rebuilding from those quakes when Tuesday's temblor hit.
Amazing that the 'primary' quake caused no deaths, but this 'aftershock' was so much more deadly...

I know a few people who have moved to "middle earth" and are (thankfully) OK. Looks like aid is being deployed as it arrives (according to the BBC anyway). Hope everyone on EM in NZ is OK.
