Last night 65 confirmed dead. They've pulled 11 people out overnight (like lucky but bedraggled chap above).
Some weren't so lucky as one story reports a mother died protecting her child - with the baby in her arms.
Latest estimates: may be up to 300 dead. Trevor at NewZeal.blogspot.com is OK. We don't know anyone down in Christchurch, but we wish them well and hope more survivors are found.
Sunrise in New Zealand summer is usually just beautiful. Let's pray morning brings good news to Christchurch...
