Happened only a few hours ago during Tuesday lunchtime, Auckland has many collapsed buildings with trapped people.

Hi Russ

Yes, the news does not get any better as the hours pass.

We in Australia think of our friends in Christchurch as good mates.

Lets hope the death toll does not keep rising and they continue to rescue people from the rubble

I think the area in which we live has gone mad.

Floods in Aust.  Another flood in Aust.  Cyclone in Aust. Bush fires in Aust. NOW earthquake in NZ.

All in a space of 5 weeks

Don

2011 sure has started with a bang in this part of the world Don. I'm working on BHP's Hedland to Newman iron ore railroad and currently living at the 129km peg. We've had 2 cyclone 'lockdowns' so far and have 'puddles' coming over the roo-bar on my hilux I drive from heavy rain we're having. But this is nothing compared to what's happening in Queensland and NZ... Things are just going crazy:Crazy::Crazy:

I sit here and watch the news reports about what's happening in NZ, God bless ya'll. Let's hope Mother Nature will settle down and give everyone a break. We have enough to worry about with human craziness to have to deal with things we have no control over. Take care, we are thinking about you.
