There have been no reports of casualties, but Radio New Zealand said malls and office blocks had been evacuated and power had been knocked out in some districts.

Dreadful. I have really good friends who work at the hospital in the City and live on the hill that overlooks ChCh.

Wow, how many more are they going to get hit by? I feel their pain. I love you folks in the land down yonder, and i will be praying for you. We get earthquakes in my area of my state on a weekly basis but none of them that powerful. I'll have my church add you guys to our prayer list.
