For those of you asking, and those of you unaware; all of Himself’s family (and a good number of our friends) are in Christchurch.
We have been extremely lucky in that everyone we contacted has been ok. Via SMS and facebook everyone has checked in and if needed moved to safer accommodation.
We know of a couple of homes in the path of the quake, at least one needs to be demolished, and one foundation is cracked.
The safer accommodation where most of our loved ones are, had power restored last night.
All in all we got off lightly.
For the most up to date information I am following the live feeds on stuff.co.nz and TVNZ.co.nz .
If you feel moved to donate there have already been a number of scams identified, so please be aware, and only donate via reputable sources like the Red Cross. In Australia go here – Red Cross
Thank you all for your concern.
