So very, very sad.
A 6.3 magnitude earthquake has hit Christchurch, New Zealand, as an aftershock from a 7.1 magnitude earthquake on Sep. 4.
Initial reports suggest that damage and fatalities "far exceed the initial quake."
According to Prime Minister John Key, at least 65 people have died, and that number is likely to go up.
Our thoughts go out to the people of New Zealand during this difficult time!
