Pike River Coal Mine Explosion

There’s been an explosion at the Pike River coal mine, reports vary but it’s thought that 29 people may be trapped in the mine, in Atarau near Greymouth , New Zealand including foreign nationals.

Our thoughts are with the miners and their families.

mine at A, quake at B

Early Wednesday morning there was a shallow magnitude 3 quake located 80km north east of Greymouth but it is not known if this was linked to the explosion.
