Earthquake in Christchurch

Home > News

Earthquake! Centered just outside of Christchurch, NZ, 7.1 on the richter scale in the early hours of Saturday morning. We feel blessed that no lives were lost, although there has been a massive amount of damage to central city buildings, and to houses in Christchurch, and surrounding districts Kaiapoi, Selwyn and Darfield. Here in Masterton, we were not affected at all – didn’t even feel the quake, and life goes on as normal. Our heartfelt sympathies are for the folks in the South Island whose lives have been turned upside down by this massive earthquake.
