Another earthquake [Feb. 22nd, 2011|06:14 pm]

I'm still here, it was two thirds of the way to the other end of the island (the same city that got hit last year).

I have yet to hear from friends of mine who live up there so am not quite as sociable as normal.

Edited to add: Today (Saturday) I finally heard that the couple of friends I was most concerned about are safe and well (they're the ones likely to have been working in the city centre where most of the destruction happened). I haven't seen anyone I know yet among the confirmed casualties (145 at latest report) but one of the earliest publicly named is from around here (his mother lives just out of town and he's been a big name in sports administration) so everyone's still a bit jittery.

Thanks.

Keep your eyes out for news on your local TV/radio/papers, one of the major collapses was a building which had an English language school in it and going by reports at least one of the students was from your part of the world.

I'm glad to hear you and yours are safe (as far as known). I knew it wasn't close to Invercargill, but I thought you might have friends up there. {sympathetic smile, HUGS, SQUEEZES}
