Chantelle managed to get in touch with Scott, he's alive and uninjured.
Thanks for the thoughts guys. Finally logging in to here now, having forgotten my password and just remembering to check in.
AFAIK everyone I know in Chch is fine. I survived with full power, internet and running water. I'm currently in Auckland until Thursday, so if anyone wants to meet up for something, I can probably be convinced to. Though really I don't know many of you very well, and I'm a bit on edge still.
