Desi, I've just been reading about this on the BBC, I do hope you manage to contact your son soon and that he and his friends are all fine.

Heartfelt condolences to those affected by this.

What is happening at the minute to NZ and Australia, floods, cyclones, earthquakes, fires??

hi yes thankfully just got through to the school and all is good there
the boys are in there dorms in bed and because they dont have tv at the school they have been sheltered from whats happening around them and dont know anything.

there are fires in the buildings that are collapsed and were people are trapped that there trying to put out
its a lot worse then the big quake in september

yeah i dont know its teribble theres also floods hopefully they get that under control or the people that are trapped will die
not only are they stuck but now they have flooding and fires

Its terrible whats going on with weather and natural disaster at the moment.. My heart goes out to all those affected by this unpredictable and unavoidable tragedy!!

thanks everyone
around 120 people were pulled out of buildigs its unreal
have just been told a 9 month old boy is dead after a tv fell on him
its great that so many countries are on there way to help out
hopefully there will be no more big earthquakes
some recovery's have been put on hold as the buildings are unsafe and another building ( the 2nd tallest in chch) is about to colapse and there saying its ready to collapse on top of the building they are trying to rescue people from
its so sad and unreal
its great so many people are uniteing and helping out
so far they are reporting that 75 are dead and 300 are missing
heres hopeing they can get thoose that are alive out and quickly
