DEVELOPING NEWS - State of emergency has been declared: Good evening. The Port Hills fires are still spreading and are out of control. A state of emergency has now been issued ( see below for more details )
** Please don't go into the area to 'LOOK' , emergency services and home owners need to be able to get in & out **
Our Christchurch forecast is updated - http://cwu.co.nz/forecast/christchurch/
LOCAL STATE OF EMERGENCY DECLARED IN CHRISTCHURCH AND SELWYN
The Mayors of Christchurch City and Selwyn District have made a joint decision to declare States of Emergency in their respective areas in relation to the Port Hills fires.
The declaration follows the evacuation this afternoon of 200-300 residents as the fire shifted closer to residential properties. It is no longer just a significant rural fire on the boundary of the city. It is now a city issue with suburbs being evacuated. Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel says a city response is also required to ensure the safety and welfare of residents.
“Christchurch needs a multi-agency response given the seriousness of the situation. We need to be able to draw on all the resources possible to give our residents confidence in the ongoing response.”
Selwyn District Mayor Sam Broughton says, “we acknowledge there has been a huge effort responding to the fire to date, however this declaration recognises the seriousness of the situation, and this will allow us to provide all the assistance necessary to respond to the unfolding situation.
“The district and the city must work together to manage the situation and address the different challenges the fire is creating in each area.”

We want new laws with powerful sentencing for those who loot during periods of civil disaster. It’s evil that anyone would rob others during a quake like the one today, or any other emergency. Looters ransacked a Christchurch family’s house after they left with their disabled daughter to seek safety in case of a tsunami. When caught these cold-hearted individuals must get much more than a slap on the wrist. The sentence needs to be a stern lesson to them and others. Not only are their actions deplorable, police time is wasted in an emergency when they are diverted to track down looters. Parliament, when it resumes tomorrow, should condemn these acts, and agree to pass legislation that will deliver a sentence that will make anyone else, when tempted, think twice. Looting occurred after the Christchurch earthquakes too and, to be fair, we parliamentarians should have done something about it.
New Zealanders must get the jobs to rebuild earthquake damaged roads and buildings, not cheap migrant labour. Recruitment companies are already eyeing the dollars they'll get from bringing in cheap labour from the Philippines. We should have no truck with that. Statistics NZ revealed recently the number of unemployed rose by 1000 to 128,000. The number of Kiwis aged from 15 to 24 who don't have a job is at 74,000. In the aftermath of the quakes there’s got to be a real effort to get these Kiwis into jobs. We don’t want New Zealanders shunted aside by cheap foreign labour as they were in the Christchurch Rebuild.
KIWIS LOVE: Floppy hats and gumboots. We’re giving away these special Macca’s floppy hats and gum boots (x2) as well as a $100 voucher for Macca’s. Be in to win by tagging a friend who you’d share a Kiwi burger with. #Kiwiburgerisback

Through contributions from the wonderful Kiwi supporters and organised by Head of Delegation, Lyn Lockhart from Softball NZ, the White Sox presented each team member from Kenya with a new pair of cleats, and the Head Coach three new team bats.
