Tragedy struck today in New Zealand when a 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck Christchurch. The death toll at this point is 65 people. Reports of buildings caving in and people trapped underneath the rubble continue to pour in. 

The earthquake struck right during lunch hour and people were seen bloodied and staggering throughout the streets as you can see in the video below.
Laura Campbell said she was at work at the bottom of a six-story building when the earthquake struck. She described seeing “windows blowing out, bricks falling down, people screaming, the whole nine yards.” “It was bloody serious,” said Campbell, who was trying to walk home. “I’m worried about what I’m going to find down the road.”

Aftershocks continued to be felt through Christchurch and the surrounding areas. Please pray for the people of New Zealand and for the families who have been impacted by this tragedy.
