Today Christchurch was hit by a 6.3 magnitude earthquake. This is an open thread for discussions of the Christchurch Earthquake. Any NZ feminists/ commenters who want to check in and let us know they are okay, please do. My grasp of the geography of the South Island is tenuous so if you are nowhere near the quake let us know that too.
HAT authors: if you see a link to charities/NZ Government organising a fundraiser for Christhchurch Earthquake victims please feel free to add a link in this post. Commenters please feel free to leave links in comments.
Finding people, helping out, other donations, from Mary: please see Sarah Robot’s extensive links. Phone coverage in Christchurch is now poor and at least on Tuesday people were being asked to keep the lines clear. Try SMS instead to get in touch with someone in the area directly. People can phone DFAT on 1300 555 135 with concerns about Australians in Christchurch.
