    Supporting or defending Donald Trump is such an unforgivable moral failing that it calls every bit of your judgement and character into question. Nothing about you should be trusted if you can look at this man and find redeemable value

        All good thanks. It's interesting, the entire fault all the way to the Kermadecs is active. Thousands of quakes over the last seven hours. Wellington survived fine though everything's now closed. been asleep for the last 4 hours, just getting updates on Tsunamis now. Looks like the entire country is on the move. Probably trying to get further away from Australia.

          We've settled on 7.5 for the first, one of the stations wasn't reporting because it was destroyed in the quake

            Glad you are OK. Hope your country dodges the worst of what could be.

                Bit of a slow death going on really. We're getting 5.5-6.5 every hour or so, buildings in the city that survived happily for the first few hours are now starting to fall apart. We're loosing some of the early waterfront buildings despite strengthening meant to make them safe up to 7, plus some of the newer apartment blocks are giving out (all long since evacuated of course). If it keeps going overnight we're going to get full collapses.

                    Stay safe, buddy. Is there any organization but the Red Cross that accepts donations?

                      Things a lot better today, the frequency and intensity has dropped right off. Wellington's waterfront has taken a hammering but apart from that is all good. There's a few buildings that'll have to be demolished but nothing collapsed (yay earthquake standards). Kaikoura got smashed though, HMNZS Canterbury is currently evacuating the place. Looks like we'll need a new state highway.
