It really isn't good. I know that we keep getting the 'get thru' ads on tv but you never think that it's going to happen to you and this proves that sometimes it does and you need to have a plan.
I was disgusted by one of the news channels reporting that Dan Carter and Richie McCaw were both ok - as if the RWC is the 1st thing on everyone's mind
This is the type of ad we see
That video would be funny if it weren't so pathetic. OK - well done to this perfect survival family, but it must be of small comfort to those who are well and truly stuck in this now.
BBC News showed some quite amazing rescue scenes, but it's an absolute tragedy that so many people are still believed to be trapped. And the thought of all those who have died inside the CTV building is a horror beyond belief.
Tell me, though - because reports in the UK are a bit confusing - has this earthquake destroyed the entire city, or only a part of it?
