    Christchurch, our second biggest city, was hit by another big earthquake today (as anyone who watches the news anywhere probably are aware). They're saying 65 dead so far, but numbers will grow largely. My sister was in the city about half an hour before hand, but had just left on a plane before hand. A cousin who lives in the city was out on the other side of the country during the day, for a job interview. My family has certainly got off luck. One good friend in Christchurch is alright, with not much damage done to her or or family's place.

    Seems Australia already have a Urban Search and Rescue team on the way, with the US preparing to help as well. Aren't neighbours great.

    Still trying to get hold of Deathmage, who lives in the area. He's out in the suburbs, luckily, so should be alright. Luckily university isn't due to start until next week.

    Thoughts go out to all the people down there. Terrifying situation to be in - especially following so close to the other big one in September.

    Just got word from Deathmage that he is okay. That's five out of five people I know down there accounted for. Modern technology is such an amazing thing - think how long it would take to find this out even ten-fifteen years ago.
