Yesterday a 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit New Zealand.

A 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit Christchurch in September 2010.

So far, 75 people were killed and 300 are still missing.

Lots of people are still trapped inside the damaged buildings.

Some areas are unsafe because there are lots of unstable buildings.

Police warned that the 26-story Hotel Grand Chancellor may collapse.

If that happens, it may cause disaster to the unstable buildings around it.

On Thursday, more foreign rescuers will be helping to dig out the trapped victims.

I am very sad and sorry for the earthquake victims and their families.

I hope that there will be better news tomorrow.

The quake caused ice to break from New Zealand’s biggest glacier and formed huge icebergs in the Tasman Lake.
