We woke up to some shocking news this morning – an earthquake in Christchurch that has caused a state of emergency and lots of damage. This is a shock to us as we lived in Christchurch for five years and so there are lots of people we were a bit concerned about. The quake was  7.1 in magnitude  – rather a big one!! Thankfully as far as we are aware, no one we know was injured – thank you Jesus!! Here are some media pics.

Sad that some of these beautiful old buildings were damaged – I really hope they can restore them.
