Not again

I woke up this morning to the news that yet another big earthquake has hit Christchurch. I hope and pray that all my friends, their families and everyone I know in Christchurch have come through this one unscathed. Last time, in September, the quake hit at about four in the morning, everyone was tucked up in bed and there were no fatalities. This one hit at about one in the afternoon, the city was in full swing and so far there are almost seventy confirmed deaths and many hundreds of people missing, or trapped. My heart goes out to a city I love, and all the people affected by this disaster.

Here is the latest news about the quake

And here are some pictures from the website showing some of the devastation, including the collapsed tower of the iconic Christ Church Catherdral.

I hope you are all safe and would appreciate some reassurance.
