    "Are these people running panicked or walking"...wow, what an idiot. "No, Bob, they are walking like it`s an every day drating occurrence." I hate how the news sensationalizes everything.

    truly sad. I know somebody`s whoes family lives there. They are fine, but lost their homes. New Zealand is my top place to visit on my bucket list. Love that place.

    My parents had just left Christchurch on their cruise around Australia and New Zealand the day before. I had to text them to see if they were okay. My mom didn`t even know what I was talking about! And she wasn`t very far from there still!

    First NZ had a minor earthquake some months ago, then Australia had the Queensland Floods, then a Cyclone (Hurricane, Tornado) go right through Queensland in Australia, now this. But this one has cost the most lives. 65 last time I heard.
    4 Natural disasters in only a few months takes it toll.

    I was in the centre of Christchurch coming back from lunch when it hit.. I have never felt anything like it. It was like a war-zone! Fires broke out, cars were flattened by debris, rubble and glass EVERYWHERE, people running and screaming.. We saw bodies being pulled out of buildings.. and they`re still working to rescue trapped people out of buildings up to 6 stories that were absolutely demolished. I know people that were killed. The worst part is we were just recovering from the september 4th earthquake which was a 7.1 magnitude. It is truly a horrific day in New Zealand..

    Thank you for not getting the joke. That is like saying you don`t understand the obvious. Also resorting to personal insults is the last resort of the weak minded.

    I used to live near Christchurch. It was a beautiful city and the people were great. The central square was an amazing place to spend a Saturday afternoon, now it lies in ruins. To all the kiwi`s on IAB, my heart goes out to you. Please try and ignore all the 14 year-olds on here with an attitude problem. they just don`t understand.

    There are 72 people confirmed dead and still at least a hundred missing! So disgusted reading some of the comments on here. Any idea how this effects a country of only 4 million people! Interesting to see what country a lot of the insensitive comments are coming from, not surprising to be honest. NZ is a country in mourning, why even comment at all if you can`t be respectful?

    Sorry about that, emmettyville does have a point but Canada was inadvertently mentioned as it is bordering the U.S.

    Basically we do want our own tagging but to be realistic, they would have to tag from all over the world to be fair.
