He is currently logged into FB, so I assume he must be OK. I love the folks here, they are so caring. Super nice!

I'm fine as the quake is in another city about 500 Km's away and I didn't even feel it.
Woke up this morning to the news on the radio and thought it was a joke as Christchurch is not known for large earthquakes.

Thank you.

Well its all happening here today as there has been a lite plan crash at Fox Glacier (South Island as well) today killing 9 people. Uuuugh

We're so relieved Liam to hear you're okay. The latest I heard, there were no earthquake fatalities but there was terrific damage. The airplane crash only adds to the tragedy.

We'll be praying for all.

Thanks Luanne and Todd.

An update on the plane crash is that it was from a sky diving company and crashed on take off so no chance to use the parachutes ironically enough.

Apparently one person did survive the crash.

The thing that concerns me is that with the stress relieved with this quake it will put pressure on the three fault lines that I live above???

I hope if there is a big one in Wellington its around November 20th?? ;-)

Liam, so glad to hear that you are okay not near the earthquake. Maybe there won't be any near you.
