Just spoke to a friend in Christchurch, "just had a massive earthquake, lots of people are dead possibly hundreds, we're all okay so don't worry"

Devastating news, our prayers are with all the good people of Christchurch!!

Just flicked the TV on and the scenes look horrific. My thoughts are with those in Christchurch. Stay safe.

Absolutely horrific footage

Thoughts and prayers are with the residents of Christchurch and the surrounding areas.

Hope you're all keeping safe guys

Luckily no real damage to our house but things have fallen off shelves again and stuff has moved.
Felt another 2 or 3 afterwards but seem to have quietened down for now.

I can cope with the smaller ones but this was too big- must be one of the biggest aftershocks we've had I'd have a stiff drink to calm down but I have to work later
I am glad you are alive. thought about you first when I heard that terrible news. Hope you are really ok.

Everyone here in Welly watching tv on the steet and talking each other at a shop etc. not working..... *****ing scary man..

I pray for everyone in CHCH .... It makes me so sad.

Here is some video coming out. Minute 2:53 and 5:40 shows an aftershock and it's pretty frightening to see people running. Apparently a 6.3 followed by a 5.6 and a 5.5 aftershock.
