    Christchurch New Zealand 6.3 Earthquake 2.21.2011 Multiple Deaths

    A 6.3-magnitude earthquake ripped through Christchurch, New Zealand, on Tuesday afternoon, causing multiple fatalities as it toppled buildings onto buses, buckled streets and damaged cathedrals, authorities said.
    New Zealand Police announced on the agency's website that a large-scale evacuation of the central city was under way. According to the news release, the earthquake killed an undetermined number of people at various locations around the city, including passengers on two buses crushed by buildings that had fallen on them.

    It's very shallow(according to my USGS). Only 4 kilometers depth. About 2.48 miles.

    It's crazy how much of a difference that makes. The quake in September was a much higher magnitude and didn't do this much damage did it?

    A powerful earthquake struck New Zealand's already-bruised city of Christchurch on Tuesday, killing at least 65 people as it collapsed buildings, buried vehicles under debris and sent rescuers scrambling to help trapped people.

    My Mum's away on a holiday in Christchurch at the moment and I am just praying she is alright. I've been trying to ring her all afternoon, but I think the phone lines around Christchurch are still down.

    Thank you SuziQ. I had registered my Mum with DFAT and was just looking at this website when my phone rang..... and it was MUM. The relief is enormous. Thank God she is unharmed and was very lucky to be in a car driving when the earthquake struck. The car shook from side to side but apart from that she didn't feel much else. She said the road was cracked wide open in a lot of places. She has now only got power and she had no idea how bad it was.

    I just pray for all the injured and trapped and their loved ones.
