Christchurch Earthquake

We have been following events in Christchurch, New Zealand, since a 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit the city back on September 4th.  The library at the University of Canterbury was damaged by the quake and was scheduled to re-open this month.  Sadly, a 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck the city yesterday and there are fatalities.  Here’s a link to an article about the earthquake from the Christian Science Monitor: http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Asia-Pacific/2011/0222/New-Zealand-earthquake-Authorities-scramble-after-temblor-leaves-at-least-65-dead.  You can also follow news reports and personal accounts on Twitter by searching #christchurch.
