who was the forumer of christchurch? i forgot his nickname. Joe is from Motekua, north of NZ, so fortunately i don't think he has been affected directly. There were a serie of quakes around the world today, including a 5.9 in the northwest of my country.

I'm fine here thanks, but it certainly was a long one, and strong enough to slosh water out of the fish tank.

There is no road access to the worst affected areas at present, so not much news, although it sounds like there have been casualties. Tsunami have occurred in the worst areas, but no more than two metres, and fortunately coinciding with a low tide.

The worst problem here is the heavy rain warning for today -up to 200mm from the 18 hours after midday. The combination of heavy rain after shakes has caused problems here before, so warnings have been issued.

Two people have been reported dead so far, lets hope that number doesn't rise. Long rolling quake that lasted for several minutes. When i seen it as a 7.5 that was located two hours from here i knew if it felt this bad here then towns around the epicenter would be devastated. Currently some towns and villages are cut off due to the quake seriously damaging roads and causing severe landslides

Good to hear it won't be a mass-casualty event at least! Great news that you are alright. Any damaged buildings in Christchurch now?

Not really, just some minor damage which is a relief. The quake triggered several others towards the north of the South island and North island so many towns and cities have had power outages with wellington also being quite damaged. The city center there is like a ghost down. The towns and villages around the epicenter about two hours from here are cut off and have no access to water, sewage or communication services so emergency services are flying in to get them get aid to them and get thing back online. The quakes are happening mostly out of heavily populated areas which is why there isn't more significant damage and more casualties. People do worry about aftershocks however as the deadly Christchurch 6.3 earthquake that happened in February 2011 was said to be a aftershock of a larger 7.1 quake that happened about an hour outside Christchurch months before.
