wow six pages already but OMG that was so freaking being on the top floor of my house. And the rumble I've watched way to much supernatural stuff I think being asleep and hearing the rumble was like something from a sci fi. No damage here lucky house was made quake proof when we built it. And Redwood doesn't have much damage except the sand that is over our driveway.

HOLY CRAP.

Seen pictures of St Albans yet? We got the worst of it. Destroyed houses, ripped up roads, and more gonk

Really worried about some of my friends, they live very very near where the quakes epicenter is. One of them had to evacuate her house and watch it fall to pieces. And I haven't been able to contact the others.

Oh god, really scared.

God that is so awful. My Uncle's worried about his shop, if the fish might go off in the freezer since there's no power.

Pyro will be FINE. If her house is damaged, then it makes sense that she's not going to be sitting around on CNZ like the rest of us, or even on her cellphone. I think the same will go for everyone else who isn't around right now.

BE CALM, FOLKS. BE CALM.

//tries to be calm

Sorry about being all crazy, I guess the shock of everything has finally caught up to me. I'm my aunts at the moment, since at home there's no water or power. There's a hole in the roof of the living room, so right now my uncle and neighbours are covering the roof with tarpaulins. There's also lots of sand volcanoes everywhere, which I can see little kids playing with (d'aww).

Just to let you know I've heard from Adele, she and Bill are ok, as are their family and pets.

I'm so glad so many of you are able to check in. I grew up in Christchurch (Avonside and New Brighton) and moved back for a short time and have heaps of friends there.

I am worried for all those without power and water.

I have heard from Ben, he must be O.K. cause he was checking on me. (And Mandie.)
I have not heard from Serah or Emma or Emma (RMD/ZPK) or Milly or Snow, or cyren but ZPK and Serah and Olli have posted on FB. I'm gonna check ZPK/Olli/Serah soon.

Power and water is on now in Bryndwr. Little if any damage here. Cracked one window.

Um, advice is to boil all drinking water. And do not flush your toilet, otherwise it will end up on a street in new brighton. Also avoid calling cells if you can, as it will drain the batteries in the cell towers. For those without water, or with structural damage listen to the radio. They are thinking of bringing in water tankers to several points, and setting up Evaucation centers in Linwood and Aranui and Mairehau High Schools. But listen for updates before assuming anything.
Food wise I know from my time in the red cross that the supermarkets will try to open. Lack of power will not stop them. They do view themselves as part of the emergency response..

Thanks to all of the people who asked about me and others. Really appreciate it.

Rang mum up at 5:30am, and she asked what I was doing checking on her at that hour. You didn't feel the earthquake in Blenheim?

Thank goodness the aftershocks have almost stopped.

Now to wait on the cat to decide to come back.

I'M GLAD EVERYBODY IS OKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY.
We felt it down here in Dunnaz. Well, I did at least. xD Was laying in bed, all sleepy at around half past four when my damn ornament starts clicking away(the bottom of it isn't flat, so it makes noise whenever I shut my draws or something). Didn't register, bed starts making noise. Didn't register, then all of a sudden my bed starts shaking. Hobbled sleepily over to the door, put my ornament on the ground to stop it being so noisy.
Didn't even cross my mind that it could be the big one. And I am so ashamed to say that I didn't think of anybody. =/ Even when I got back into bed. /Hangs head in shame

But as soon as I got up, I read a txt from m4 and master chaos, which then started the ball rolling and here I am, freaking out about you all and hoping you're all alright.
I'm so glad that nobody is hurt. <3333333333333333333333333333333333333
Keep safe, darlings!!

@Glenn: I was talking to Serah on MSN an hour ago, she says she's got power but limited water so in short, she's fine-ish > <

Glad everyone's okay
