Another earthquake.

Tue Feb 22, 2011 2:17 pm

Not sure what Firetrust's status is but this one sounds pretty bad right now.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2011 ... 145320.htm
A powerful earthquake has struck the New Zealand city of Christchurch bringing down buildings and buckling roads, with reports of serious injuries.

The US Geological Survey says the quake was 6.3 in magnitude and struck five kilometres from the city at a shallow depth of just four kilometres.

It says the quake hit shortly before 12:50pm (local time), just five kilometres to the north-west of the city.

I am watching a live feed from our ABC TV station direct to Christchurch. Lots of collapsed buildings, multiple fatalities expected and they have run out of ambulances. Quake happened at 12:50 NZT right on lunch time. It could not happened at a worse time. No estimates of persons trapped but could run into hundreds. Very dramatic pictures of persons being rescued. No power, telephone and cell phone coverage in the city. Main cathedral has lost it's spire. Hope FT crew are all OK.

Saw pictures on the lunchtime News here in the UK. Stunned by magnitude of devastation. My thoughts are with everybody who has been affected by this disaster and hope that all you guys at Firetrust are OK. Thoughts are with you ...

Another of our beta testers just received an email from Nick and all from FT are OK but obviously shaken up. Building heavily damaged.

Saw live NZ TV news here in Sydney yesterday on the devastation in Christchurch CBD. Relieved to hear Firetrust & staff over there are OK.
Our thoughts are with you guys.
