I’m posting this quickly, between aftershocks. There has been another huge earthquake – magnitude 6.3, 5 km deep, centred in Lyttleton. It was, and still is, absolutely terrifying. But so far I’m ok, and Stewart is ok – Southbridge and Lincoln are on the other side of Christchurch, so we have so far escaped the worst. Phone lines are down, so getting in touch with each other is going to be hard. The few pictures I’ve seen are catastrophic, so pray, keep your fingers crossed, do whatever the hell you can to send good will to all of us. And if any Cantabrians read this, please let us know that you’re ok.
Hang in there. Hang in there.
