Witnessing New Zealand's Darkest Day

New Zealand has been rocked by a serious earthquake in Christchurch:

One of New Zealand's biggest cities lay in ruins Tuesday after a powerful earthquake toppled tall buildings and churches on a busy weekday, killing at least 65 people in the country's worst natural disaster in decades.

My sympathies go out to our distant friends.

UPDATE: We are sending help:

The U.S., meanwhile, has dispatched a search-and-rescue team to New Zealand to help in the quake's aftermath.

Good luck in keeping the death toll from going higher.
