6.3 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Christchurch; Link For Geocachers To Check In

At 12:51pm this afternoon there was a 6.3 magnitude earthquake 10km south of the Christchurch CBD. Being very shallow (only 5km deep) it has caused tremendous damage to the area and it appears there are numerous injuries with some unconfirmed reports of death. The Christchurch Cathedral appears to have been destroyed.

A forum topic has been started on the NZ Recreational GPS Society forums by keewee to provide a place for Christchurch area Geocachers to check in. If you know a Christchurch Geocacher and have confirmation they are okay it would be great if you could post a note saying that.

Our thoughts and prays will be with everyone up there at this tough time.

    My heart sank when I watched the World News this morning. I’m in the US but my thoughts and prayers are with those whose lives were turned upside down by this tragedy.
