Christchurch Hit Again

This afternoon a 6.3 magnitude hit Christchurch, this is the 3rd major earthquake in less than a year.  CBD buildings crumbled with one crushing a bus.  The tragic death toll is 65.  Family there tell me their house is flattened and there is no power, water or sewage.  They are camping on a friend’s lawn.  The majestic Christchurch Cathedral right in the heart of town lost its tower, previously a tourist attraction to climb and see a Birdseye view of the city.

Today our thoughts are with the people of Christchurch who are struggling to survive another disaster.

The right hand picture is the tower in its full glory, which for a small donation visitors could climb.
