Christchurch Earthquake

With a devastating effect Christchurch was hit by an earth quake on Saturday morning. On the news they were talking about what had happened in Christchurch. It's been devastating for the people and even moreso because they've had more than one hundred aftershocks. Floods started to happen because the water pipes broke underneath the ground. The Auckland Police department sent about 80 police officers to help the emergency services in Christchurch. People are desparate to go back to their normal lives. If they want to drink water, they have to boil it so they won't get sick. I feel sorry for the people in Christchurch.

  1. Wow they had everything taken from them. Are their any relief funds being started to help buy supplies for them. Since they have lost everything. What other groups are helping the people of Christchurch. Please keep me informed about how everything is going for the next couple of week.
