Christchurch Earthquake

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

The thoughts of all New Zealanders are with the people of our city of Christchurch which suffered a devastating earthquake on 22nd February 2011. We spent an anxious few days waiting for news of friends who live and work in Christchurch, and have been relieved to find out they are all ok. Our heartfelt sympathy goes to those who have lost loved ones.

There have been many enquiries from overseas about our welfare. The earthquake was centred in the City and outlying rural areas were not as badly affected as they were in the earthquake of September 2010. Here in the North Island, we did not feel the earthquake at all.
