Re: Christchurch yet again

Finally heard back from a long time acquaintance whose hoise is within a mile of the epicenter. He was visiting friends up along the north coast on vacation. But he has reports from a neighbor that a dozen of the homes around his are a total loss and his own home sustained severe damage. There is no water, sewer, electric, ... pretty much back to the stone age if it were not for cellular communications. But it seems as if there were comparatively few injuries / fatalities compared to what was possible.
