On the Christchurch Quake

This is pretty bad, it was  hasn't gotten all that much coverage here given what is happening in the Middle East right now and the silliness in Wisconsin, but this quake seems to have done an inordinate amount of damage. The death toll is 75 and climbing. It is likely to climb much higher.

 The area is being wracked by aftershocks as well. Check out this animation of the earthquake history since the main quake.
