Christchurch today- 22nd February 2p.m.

News report:

'Deaths have been confirmed after a massive aftershock struck Christchurch this afternoon. Witnesses reported seeing people crushed by falling debris in the central city. '

Nearing the end of our tour of South Island we leave here to return our campervan on Sunday to Christchurch. Slightly nervous as the recent quake  was 6.3 and seems to have caused considerable damage and injury to passers by and possible fatalities.

We had intended to spend a few days in Christchurch before we returned to North Island but are now considering just getting in and out as quickly as possible presuming there are still flights leaving.
