6.3 Earth quake

A  6.3 quake hit Christchurch around 12.50 this afternoon with wide spread damage and loss of life we are 2 hours down the road and man where i was  rattled and rolled it was scary here let alone up in christchurch there have been quite a few decent after shocks at least two at 5 rolled through this afternoon. I haven't had a chance to contact friends yet as the lines are overloaded. Our thoughts and prayers are with those in Christchurch.
