    Likewise, my thoughts are with our ZL friends and their families.

    I heard it while lying in bed listening to BBC radio on my internet radio this morning so I switched to a local NZ station.

    It's serious with two people dead but it could have been very much worse if it had been closer to one of the bigger cities. It seems like aftershocks have been happening every few minutes for hours.
    A few towns are cut off because of road and bridge damage.
    There's some damage to highrise buildings and roads in Wellington, the capital. It looks to be mostly cosmetic damage, broken windows etc. People are being told to stay away from the central city today but Wellington is expected to be pretty much back to normal tomorrow.
    The tsunami didn't really eventuate. There were some bigger than normal waves but the threat warning has been lifted.

    So ... it's bad enough but they're very lucky it wasn't worse.

    Hopefully the tsunamis didn't go too far inland or cause too much damage
