Just read this on msnbc.com of an earthquake that hit Christchurch New Zealand

WELLINGTON, New Zealand A 6.3-magnitude earthquake Tuesday rocked the southern New Zealand city of Christchurch, collapsing buildings, cracking streets and causing multiple fatalities and serious injuries.
Live video footage showed streets strewn with bricks and shattered concrete. Sidewalks and roads were cracked and split, and hundreds of dazed, screaming and crying residents wandered as sirens blared throughout the city. Bodies were being pulled from rubble. Water mains burst, causing extensive flooding.



With all the discussion the last few days in regards to urban survival kits (USK) I am hoping that some people in Christchurch were prepared.

Plenty of related news via Google.

New Zealand is a very beautiful, very small country. This is going to be tough. Best wishes.
