Default Earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand

There's been an earthquake in Christchurch measuring 6.3 on the Richter Scale. At the moment, 65 are confirmed killed but hundreds could be trapped inside collapsed buildings.

I saw a friend of Vanilla confirm that she's okay on facebook, but appearantly her flat had to be evacuated. It may have gotten demolished in the earthquake. Jessika, my heart goes out to you and I hope you and yours are alright. Let us know how you're doing when you can!

I couldn't sleep and hopped on the computer and saw the report on Yahoo about 30 minutes after the earthquake. Having never experienced a natural disaster I can only imagine how frightening it would be, especially being the 2nd there in like 6 months or so. I am glad to hear Vanilla is ok! Best wishes to any family and friends of anyone involved.

Hi guys, I was bused out to the countryside with my flatmates and a family is looking after us. I fell into the liquification and sprained by back but I'm ok. I'm really really upset, shocked, frightened. I was online on mb when the earthquake happened talking to someone on skype and he could see me screaming as my flat fell apart (I had just given him a tour of it on camera). I don't really know what to do but just trying to stay strong. Originally we were in a welfare place with 1000's of people where it was pouring down so we got soaked and muddy.

I am so grateful to be alive, thank you for your support I'll keep in touch. xxxxxx

That's great to hear that you are okay

My goodness Vanilla.
Thank you for posting so quickly!
I didn't know you lived in that area when I clicked this topic so when I kept on reading and was really worried about you.
It's a big relief to get the information from no one but you .

It's great to hear people are there to help you right now and that you are okay.
Do you have any idea if you can (ever) get back to your appartment?

6.3 is pretty heavy. I once was a couple of miles away from the epicentre of a 5.4 earthquake.
We were fine, but in the city of Roermond, where the quake took place, a lot of houses collapsed.
I don't even want to think about what 6.3 must feel like.

I'm really very glad you're okay. I hope everyone you know is fine too.
Careful with your back, hopefully you'll be able to keep posting here.

You don't have to 'do' anything now.
Just try to get yourself together, try to relax a bit.
They'll tell you what's going to happen next at some point.

Big hug from the other side of the world!

I just read it, terrible news. It's good that you're ok Vanilla. Everything can be rebuild, except for people's lives.
