Badly shaken Kiwi - 7.1 Earthquake

Hi All

Just to let you know that Canterbury (South Island - New Zealand) will not be a place to visit for several weeks. We have had a 7.1 earthquake that struck approx 14hrs ago. We are still getting big aftershocks.

The city has been badly damaged as has many residential areas.

We are working under a state of civil emergency at present.
