    Hi everyone,

    I live a few hours south of where the earthquake happened, and would just like to send a message to any fellow BHW members in the area hoping you are all ok and doing your best to keep your spirits up. I normally see this kind of stuff happening overseas but now that it's happening in my own backyard it really hits home, seeing dead bodies in the rubble was upsetting and I have no words to describe things, except I have alot of sympathy for the families and friends of these people who were killed. This earthquake has even got coverage on CNN, so it's very significant, we have accepted assistance from Australia and even the US for which we are very greatful for.

    I know of a few SEO firms in Chch and I hope their families are doing the best they can to get by.

    There was a 7.1 quake in the same place in Sept 2010 which was only about 6 months ago, so Chch hasn't really recovered at all. Makes me think the big one is going to happen very soon, was going to spend $200 on some SEO stuff but now this quake happened my family is alot more important and we are using the $$$ to buy more emergency gear. Any spare $$$ I get from BH or WH activities is going towards stuff like this.
