That is the thing about the Australian's and New Zealander's. We all pull together in times of crisis. I mean, we will take the mickey out of each other, especially when it comes to sporting events and other insults, but when push comes to shove, we will and do support our closest neighbours, hence the ANZACs. I know Australia is just as shocked about what happened in NZ as the Kiwis are, and I think more shocked that an Australian was a part of it too.

I've just spoken with my cousin from Australia and he said that New Zealand is practically a state of Australia and that despite taking the **** out of one another, Ausies and Kiwis are essentially the same people. XD

I do believe the whole of Australia is also reeling from the events of today but I also know that the people of this region will support each other through this hard period of recovery ahead.

I've seen nothing but messages of heartfelt compassion and love all throughout the afternoon and evening from local communities as well as communities from all around NZ and the entire region.

And believe me, people will remember that more than the hate that has led to the events of today.

Oh yeah, most of us do see it that way. Although, my dad keeps saying that he wishes NZ would drag Tasmania over to them so we wouldn't have to put up with them. It's typically to do with politics though. Rolling Eyes

If the aftermath of the Lindt siege is anything to go by, the outpouring of support from the local community will be huge. Yes Heart

Thank you all. Heart

There have been 50 confirmed fatalities, 38 people are still in hospital, 12 of them are still in critical condition.

The outpour of love and support has been amazing.

I am pretty sure a couple of fundraising pages were broken due to the volume of people signing in to donate to the families of the victims.

I've seen a lot of messages of love on social media over the weekend and it was heartwarming to see that people responded with love, rather than hate to this tragic event.

There is increased police presence in our town and it will go on until they have made absolutely sure that it's completely safe.

I am sure you can all follow what is happening in the media, so this will be my last post on this matter.

At approximately 8:20 PM PST, there was another quake in Cali reportedly 7.1. . .we felt it all the way here in Vegas, it rumbled through my work place for about 30 or 40 seconds, rock and a rolling. . .there are still several people trapped inside elevators in several of the hotels. . .they had the NBA summer league playing and cancelled the game as the court partially separated and our WNBA team postponed their game. . .all in all another exciting night in Vegas!!

Just got home to check on my cat, Nico. . .he was better tonight than he was yesterday after the fireworks (I found him under the couch, yesterday). . .

I'm glad that you and Nico are ok, Sir Scarz. I hope that Riley is ok too, and also Queen Blaze. I believe there were some gas explosions in Florida.

Confused Shocked Huh?! *looks it up* ... ahh... that's unfortunate - I hope they find out what happened. I'm sorry to hear people got hurt with that explosion, but am glad that it was not any worse! Thank you for thinking of me Heart but Fort Lauderdale is at least a 6 hour drive away (I'm on the other coast, further north - not too far from Clearwater Beach)... we are fine. Yes

I'm glad to hear you're ok Scarz Yes ... a 7.1 sounds nasty! Didn't they recently adjust the monitoring scales for earthquakes? Still, if you felt it in Vegas... yikes! I'm glad Nico is ok too. Yes

I'm not in So-Cal (fortunately), so I am alright. I did feel it though.

Glad to hear people (and kitties) are alright.

I was a little worried when the quake rolled through. . .one of the hotel concierges who was on the top floor actually had a major anxiety attack, she was so scared that she actually ran down the emergency stairwells all 29 floors of them, Security met her at the bottom and had an ambulance called. . .as of today, she has still not been back to work.

I am glad that we didn't have anyone stuck in our elevators, they have a new card system that is hard enough to deal with, but several people stuck in elevators is never fun.

So far everything here seems to be back to normal (as normal as it can get when there are still aftershocks being felt in Cali. . .). what most people don't realize is that Nevada is the 3rd most active seismically, behind Alaska and California.
