Just so you guys know; as of this post the death toll is at 75, with 300 people still missing.

It'll be interesting to see how Christchurch is when I get there in September - apparently none of the activities within my school's ski trip have been cancelled, but nonetheless it'll be eery seeing empty ground where destroyed buildings have been cleared from, etc.

Also, reading up on some statisitcs, apparently there'll be a decent chance I'll be experiencing a Category 6+ quake during my 11 day stay.

Theres a 23 story hotel on a big lean.
Bit on the tv, some woman with a baby was runing away from a falling bulding and it was about to fall on her her and her baby. Then she threw her baby infront of her and the bulding fell on her, but not the baby

We're getting used to it by now.

Hope you kiwis are getting through it all right, and that you won't get hit by yet another soon.
