Police in Christchurch, New Zealand say rescue efforts have turned to recovery efforts. At least 75 people were killed in a magnitude 6.3 earthquake that struck earlier this week. Another 300 people remain missing.
The images coming out of New Zealand are especially hard for Shell Beach resident Pam Roberts to see. She and her family lived in New Zealand for six years. They had just moved back to the Central Coast a year ago.
"To know that there's people that you love and care about, and to see it on TV is devastating," Robert tells us.
Roberts and her family have just gotten word that some of their friends in New Zealand are safe. One of those friends is an EMT in Christchurch, who is working to rescue the missing.
