You and me both.


ShelterBox.org is taking donations to deliver their rescue box thingies to New Zealand. I don't know how good of charity they actually are, but they seem okay.

I don't understand why the flooding after the quake.

Dam break? Liquification?

Liquifaction. Here's an article on Christchurch's susceptibility that was published after last September's big quake:

If anyone wants to see how Twitter can be used for Corporate emergency communications, check out @TelecomNZ ( www.twitter.com/telecomnz ). Pretty awesome.

Thank you, Dagny!

I was wondering if it was something like that after all the heavy rainfall they got recently, but I couldn't find it.

Here's an interesting map showing this week's 6.3 quake and the September 7.1 magnitude quake. This most recent quake was a lot closer to Christchurch (10km v. 30km) and shallower (5km v. 33km).

"Old fashioned" analog landline phones are in demand in Christchurch and residents are being urged to text instead of talk on their cell phones.

Telecom had also started a campaign to collect "old fashioned" analogue landline phones, which do not require electricity, from around the country to distribute to people in Christchurch without power.
