We have been hit by another horrifying earthquake. The aftershocks continue and it is terrifying.
I cannot tell you how unbelievably scary it is in Christchurch right now. People have died - I have heard unconfirmed reports of hundreds of deaths. So many are trapped in multi-story buildings.
The 6.3 magnitude quake was far more intense that September's 7.1 quake - just 5 kilometres underground, with an epicentre 10ks away from the CBD, at our port, Lyttleton.
We live between the CBD and Lyttleton.
The aftershocks are severe. They are coming at a rate of 2 -3 per minute in this last hour. I am undone. I do not know how I will get through the night.
And we, again, are some of the lucky ones - with moderate damage to our property and effects, and no injuries.
