Going by the way my hands are shaking, my money's on here in Chch - not very long, but pretty violent, and the aftershocks are still going (just had another sizeable one as I'm typing).

The experts did say that there was likely to be a large after shock in the 6's. Hope everyone is okay this time, as it has happened in a busy time of the day.

Doesn't sound very good at the moment, some reports that buildings are down around the square, including the cathedral.

Hope it's not as bad as reported.
