Kiritapu Murray, a longtime resident of Christchurch and friend of CoHost Steve McManus, lived through the horrible earthquakes of Sept, 2010 (7.1 magnitude) and Feb, 2011 (6.3 magnitude) . Much of Christchurch was damaged or destroyed and 185 people died.  While the events at Fukushima, Japan continue to be covered in the press, New Zealand has all but disappeared from American airwaves. In the time since September of 2010, there has been no respite from continuing earthquakes and aftershocks. Residents of Christchurch have had to adapt to what is an ongoing disaster.
