I could only watch a few seconds of that video posted. My heart ached to see people so upset and devastated.

Like Khanada, I never know how to express my emotions in these cases without sounding cliched or insincere. I'll just say that my heart truly aches for the Christchurch area & all those who've lost loved ones in the quake. I'm elated that none of our NZ Interferencers appear to have been harmed.

Stay safe tonight....

I haven't been able to hear what has caused the flooding--pipes or are there levees that broke?

lots of pipes, but liquefaction has done most it.

Anybody heard anything from the Akaroa area? I haven't seen anything yet, though admittedly I'm just starting to wade through all the news that's broken overnight. Got very fond memories of that area from childhood holidays.

I'm glad everyone here and their families who live in that area are all right .

This makes me so sad. A friend of mine has been to Christchurch many times and has always sent me photos from there, it seems like an amazingly beautiful city. New Zealand has always been one of my dream countries to visit someday, it's awful to see part of it in such ruin .

My condolences to all those who lost loved ones in this. And my heart goes out to everybody who lost livelihoods.

Angela

This whole ordeal has really affected me, some of the stories I've read nearly brought me to tears. Just looking at pictures, Christchurch really does seem so close to Adelaide, it feels like part of this city has suffered. The CTV situation is unbelievable, it would be amazing if there are survivors.

I almost feel like I've already been to Adelaide because I'm familiar with Christchurch.

i can't help but think of Haiti as well... to think they are still recovering and may never recover (and to think what would have happened had the quake been of that magnitude)
