My thoughts are with the people of Christchurch in New Zealand today. It is a great city with warm friendly people and a fantastic cafe scene. There have been deaths and injuries today as a result of the latest earthquakes to hit.
I know a few people over there - I hope they are ok but communications are not great at present and the government is asking people not to call on the phone as the phone system is required for emergencies.
ABC news24 has live streaming coverage of the quake and has lifted the usual geographic block of the ABC News24 service so that people can access information.
Once again twitter seems to be one of the more reliable ways to access information fast: http://canterburyearthquake.org.nz/
Hashtags to use are: #eqnz and #chch
Best wishes to all those who have friends and family and Christchurch.
