Earthquake in Christchurch
At 4:35AM today there was a 7.1 magnitude earthquake 33 kilometers outside of Christchurch. The quake was felt in Wellington, but I didn't feel it in Auckland (probably because I was fast asleep). A state of emergency was declared and there was an aftershock just before 8AM at 5.2 magnitude. The quake was 10 kilometers deep.
So yup, I'm safe.
