We heard on the radio that Christchurch suffered 2 aftershocks today. On the Richter scale they were 5.5 and 6.0, respectively, according to the report we heard. The intensity of the second shock was almost at the level of the quake in February and even more buildings now will be deemed irreparable and torn down. Pray for the people of Christchurch. They are suffering so intensely. Pray for New Zealand and her resilient people who have even more work ahead.
We stayed in Christchurch last Friday and I was uncomfortably aware that we were on the first floor of a two-storey building. Crushable. All night I was dreaming that there was a quake ... and there was none that night. Imagine living there full time and the anxiety that must bring.
God bless them all.
