Fork is right, and I have had a few other choices words to say.... Chch sounds like a bigger mess than before, and this time with thousands of people in the middle of it. DD is in the worst of the damage, but OK, but she (she's only 14) was so traumatised by the first big one, she hasn't slept in her bedroom since.

Have talked with DS, who was at Canterbury uni, they've evacuated and he's headed to where DH works, which is well away from the CBD (near airport). They have to figure out how to get to DS who has been evacuated by her school (in the CBD near Cathedral square) to a park well away from the CBD. Injuries, like people on the ground, buildings collapsed, water mains burst and water pouring out all over the place.

I am just trying to stay calm.

Have had heaps of small aftershocks since the 6.3 that I'm feeling way out here in Oxford, can't even imagine what it's like for those in town.

Pictures coming thru on the telly not looking good. Major damage and folk wandering aimlessly around, not knowing what to do. Major road damage and buildings down.

Sounds dreadful.

Hope there are no fatalities, but not sounding good at this early stage.

Thinking of you all.
