I'm in Wellington, about 300km to the north. Some people felt the quake here, but it was barely noticable. This is the capital though, so the national response gets c-oordinated here.

Is there anything we can do for you guys?

You already are. There is a contingent of US urban search and rescue personell flying out right now.

If you want to do something personally, there are the usual suspects managing donations:
Red Cross NZ
Salvation Army Canterbury earthquake appeal
There's a Mayoral Appeal and various banks accepting donations on behalf, but I don't think they're accessable to people from overseas. Donations of goods are problematic, because of the distances involved.

Really though, just your continuing good will means as much as anything.

I've never met anyone from NZ, Tassie or Oz that wasn't a wonderful person*. You guys always have my friendship!

I have made a donation.



*OK, the drunk idiot who kept kicking my seatback on the plane home... but that's the only one.
