News reports are saying 65 killed. No number on how many wounded.

The mayor got tossed across his office. One of the othe council members said all he could see in Christchurch as shoon as the shaking stopped was "dust".

Geologists are saying this one is worse than the one that happened late last year (7.1) due to the fact it was a shallower quake and it was closer to town.

We've got a number of Kiwi's on staff here. So far as we know none of their families have been affected.

Bad. The cleanup has begun and it looks like more bodies will be found.

Lanie.

1. I don't live in NZ, I live in Australia.
2. If you can't get up the guts to answer a simple question I posed earlier, don't bother me. Far as I am concerned, you're full of it.

Last one was a 4.4, looks like it was the last.
