I'm in Auckland so not directly affected by the quake but it has been covered extensively throughout the day on our local media.
Unfortunately it's not good news as at least 65 have been confirmed dead with some unconfirmed estimates of possibly between 200 - 400 more likely.There are still at least 100 people still trapped in some of the collapsed buildings.

Governments from around the world have pledged assistance which I'm sure our govt and those directly affected will appreciate hugely.

Thanks to all those BGG'rs who have expressed their concern for our fellow Kiwi's.

Thanks to those who have geekmailed and emailed to check up on my wife and I. The quake was on the South Island, and we (along with Colin, should any be wondering) are on the North Island, so no worries there. Many others are not so fortunate. New Zealand is a small country, and so tragedies like this hit with disproportionate force.

My wife and I's thoughts and prayers are with those in Christchurch.

Already I'm upset by the earthquake in Abruzzo/Italy and for all others ones from the last year till today (at least 78 events, over magnitude 6), this terrible news are a new blow to our serenity.

Come on Zealanders, I and all italians are with You!
