I got a call from one of my mates in New Zealand last night to tell me about the earthquake in Christchurch. He’s a JAFA (Just Another F*ckin’ Aucklander ), but we know some people down in Christchurch so it was a bit of a concern. Luckily everyone is OK.
I saw some reports on the news this morning showing some of the damage it caused. It looks pretty grim, especially since Christchurch had such a nice looking city center before. It was a level 7.1 quake, but fortunately it happened in the night after everyone had left the central business district, so there were no fatalities.
I guess rebuilding will start now. Good luck to everyone dealing with the aftermath.
