    Pray Now happening a 7.3 earthquake...

    In Christ Church New Zealand is being reported by Fox News!

    I can't provide a link to this news b/c it's just been released live on television.

    The newsfeed at the bottom of the announcement states that "buildings are down....and the situation appears to be serious." I don't know how serious they mean when they report "serious" but by my understanding, a 7.3 earthquake is pretty darn serious. At least this is IMO.

    Anyone else see this?

    Default Correction!

    Sorry guys....But the earth quake should be read as 6.3 instead of 7.3.. I misunderstood the reporter.

    But this is still a big quake, IMHO.

    My cousin is vacationing in New Zealand - sure wish he'd call his mom.

    With good building codes, a 6 pointer shouldn't be that big a deal.

    7.0, you get some serious damage. Think Haiti.

    I heard this report also and the reporter did say that buildings were down. Didn't Christcurch, New Zealnd have a big EQ last year? If's o, I'm wondering if buildings are down because they may have had some damage from that last EQ.

    You are probably correct about the buildings still being damaged from last year. It was Christchurch that got hit last year.

    The depth was rather shallow at 2.5 miles isn't it? Its my understanding, that the more shallow the quake, the more damage it does. I don't live in an earthquake zone, so perhaps someone that does and understands these things can pipe in.

    That makes a lot of sense, Jade.

    I put up a link to Matthew 24, on my Facebook wall.

    Default Figi had a quake as well

    http://www.theepochtimes.com/n2/worl...iji-51691.html

    A shallower quake at say 6.0 in the same area can do more damage than if 6.0 and deeper....there is less earth to shake.

    Not derailing thread, but showing another possible birth pain, pilot whales died........and a lot of them:

    Praying for safety...
    The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me....

    Is it just me, or is this just like a huge neon sign from our Lord saying "I'm coming, I'm coming!" and not just because it's another earthquake, but because of the name of the location (which just got hit last year).

    You have me to feel that way too.If the church still hasn't waken up to Christ's call,I am speechless.

    As a rider of public transit, I think the wierdest part was watching the bus go down it's route.
