From a fellow Pacific Rim resident here's hoping for the best in a bad situation. It could have just as easily been here and I know all your friends are ready to extend help should New Zealand need it.

Regardless if this should be here or not, my prayers do go out to the people in New Zeland, and those who lost their lives, i am sorry.

I'm sad to hear about the big quake! I visited NZ years ago and fell in love with the place! Thoughts and prayers to you all!

Well when the headline popped up tonight on yahoo, I was like what? After last year hearing another quake hit took a minute for reality to set in.

To me ChCh is my hometown down under, so this is a hard hit.

Watching it on the news now. Truly awful. Sending all my thoughts and prayers to our neighbours across the Tasman.
