Just in case you haven’t heard, Christchurch in New Zealand has just experienced another earthquake (last one was in September 2010, 7.1 magnitude). This one has had a 6.3 magnitude, but the damage was far worse than the 2010 quake, because it was much shallower.
At the time I am writing this, the confirmed death toll is 65. There are so many trapped in buildings that have partly collapsed. All those people… I have been crying a bit. It’s just shocking.
My families predictions:
Death toll: About 200 (!)
Call for donations: Will happen soon (If it does, we are going to donate).
My personal predictions:
Death toll: About 250 (sob)
Call for donations: Will happen soon (I am going to donate pocket money).
If you are in Christchurch, my heart goes out to you. I urge everyone to give donations if the call comes, and to donate blood.
For more information, look on other websites like the NZ news sites.
Poor, poor Christchurch
