My father lives in New Zealand and I have had several people calling to emailing to check in on him. I just talked to him on Skype and everyone there is fine. He is actually on the North Island and the big earthquake was on the South Island. He said everyone is just devastated as the country is very small and most people have someone they know in Christchurch where so much of the destruction was. He said with the amount who perished there in such a small country it would be like thousands of people dying in the US. Thanks for checking on him. We're thankful they're all OK.
