What's happening in New Zeland?

I haven't watched the news in a while and I've been hearing people saying "I hope everyone's ok in New Zeland" so what's going on?

  • Another major earthquake. 2 notable aftershocks/quakes thereafter, both measured over 5. Lots of devastation and frightened people.

  • So far the news from Christchurch is very sporadic. Many who's property was damaged in the quake last fall, September, had not completed repairs. There is a google web site the kids have been using to monitor and locate friends. DS spent 6 months there last year as a student at U Canterbury http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/ in Christchurch, which is now closed until further notice because of damage and aftershocks.
