I'm glad to hear this. I was mentioning to my wife as we were watching the news that I had some Newton friends in Christchurch and that I hoped that they were OK.
Good to hear that not only are you OK, but you still have internet connectivity ;)

Hi Folks

Just survived another Christchurch Earthquake.

We waited a couple of seconds before gathering up the children and running for
the doors.  Our friends had come for coffee but we convinced them to stay for
lunch.  Just as well as their house collapsed and they would almost certainly
have been severely injured otherwise.

The epicenter and depth was much closer and shallower this time so the shaking
was much more violent.  There is a lot more damage this time.  Being a work day
and around lunch time many people were in the inner city where most of the
carnage can be found.

Airport closed, power down to 80% of the city; this time modern hotel buildings
have collapsed; most historic buildings flattened.

All children were evacuated from schools.  Fortunately no one hurt there.  All
home safe and sound.
