So sorry you guys were hit again. Best wishes to all in NZ.
To all NZers in APUG and family and friends; we are hoping that everyone comes through safe and sound but from the reports here in Oz there is at least one fatality. Our sympathies go out to you all and your fellow citizens. sam
Anyone just see the guy "Topy" (or Toby ?) on the news ?
Had just been pulled out of a building...
Sean how is your location? CNN just had a scrolling notice but the current topic is Libya. I hope There isn't going to be a large loss of life. Keep us posted.
We're hearing 65 lost. From the news here in Oz. sam
We're in the North Island (Auckland region), so not much seismic activity here.

It's very sad to hear this.
I just watched the feed. The loss of life and the destruction are heart-rending.
I can well relate. I was in Santa Cruz Calif. in 1989, when the quake hit there, and the images from today are all too familiar. They are hard to watch, a vivid reminder of what happened then. Though no one I knew was hurt, and we only had some things broken, it still was very stressful, with frequent large aftershocks, no power, gas, or water, etc.
To our N.Z. friends, condolences on the loss of life and the damage to a beautiful city, and hopes that recovery can start soon. Hopes and prayers that all our members there are OK.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all in that area. An old friends daughters live in that area, I'll be on the phone alot later on. God be with all in NZ at this time, and for all time.
Glad to hear you're OK.
Saw a picture of the Church, that is a shame.
