I just heard about a Major 6.3 earthquake hitting Christchurch, New Zealand. There are reports of very heavy damage with fatalities this time compared to the one from 5 months ago. I just left there yesterday and still have a lot of friends leaving the ice still there. I'm praying for their well being and the people of Christchurch.

Absolutely. Let's hope the reports of significant fatalities turn out to be wrong...

Like you, I'm praying for the people of Christchurch and hope the efforts to rescue those trapped in buildings are successful.

BTW, Stephen, welcome back from Anarctica!
