There's been a few local ones set up
- my donation's been made!
I think I read somewhere that the PM turned down UN relief though I could be imagining that. Watching the news here I've seen that the mess in ChCh is a lot bigger than I originally thought it was, but they/we definitely got off lightly compared to what it could easily have been. Only two injuries, no deaths (not counting one lemur in the zoo
) Quite incredible really since it was apparently equivalent to the Haiti earthquake, and look what happened there. Better building codes here and probably less population concentration too, I guess. But ChCh is still getting big aftershocks - they had a 5.1 this just morning, which while quite small by comparison, is enough to bring down a building that has already been damaged, so people are still on their toes down there.
