Earthquake.


Christchurch Earthquake.
The major earthquake that hit Christchurch and devastated the city, many are dead more are still missing in the rubble of destroyed buildings, including the beautiful old Cathedral, there is no power or telephone or gas or water but help has come from around the world to assist, our military personal are all helping along with volunteers .
I personally and all my family are safe and unharmed. We live 300 km away from Christchurch and didn't even feel the vibrations, but we are feeling very depressed and upset at all the suffering.
Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers for our country. Christchurch will never be the same again.

I have been waiting patiently to read a posting from you. So glad you are all safe. My nephew works quite often at McMurdo in Antarctica and luckily is safe in the US. All his co-workers are safe in Christchurch which has always been a stopping point for them. Such a tragedy. The gorgeous cathedral....so very, very sad.

I have been watching the news here is Scotland with trepidation. My daughter lives in the outskirts and she and her family is well. I am sure knowing the New Zealanders that this will make them strong and they will rebuild although some of the lost buildings were beautiful and I am glad I saw them in their glory when I was there. So glad to hear from you too that you are safe and well. Take Care.

It is heart wrenching to hear the news about the quake. Glad to hear you are OK and I would also feel sad and upset for my fellow countrymen. Hopefully all the injured heal quickly!

It's great to hear you and your family are okay. I thought of you and another blogger after the quake...I don't know if she's fine, I haven't seen her blog since.

I read the news and I thought about you, because I have to tell you that I knew about Christchurch city because of reading your blog, so I am very glad after reading your post that you and your family are all well. But it is so sad about the dead people. Warm regards,
