Purple **^*Sparkly*^** Diamond Report 6 Dec 2012 06:25

So many awful things happening in the world, seem to be more and more natural disasters, are they of our own making do you suppose?

Not on the same scale and slightly different but still a sad loss - the other day, a little girl of 4 was killed in her grandmother's car, on a railway crossing - human error?, car fail? crossing warning fail? One death not many as in some disasters , but still devastating to those who loved that little one and her little life cut short.

Life is so precious and we take it for granted till something happens to make us rethink.

Oh how awful Susan, I am glad you got off lightly but feel so sorry for those who have been affected, what an awful Christmas many of them will have. My thoughts go especially to those who have lost loved ones, may they rest in peace, and may their families get all the support and comfort available to help them through.

Take care

Well, mother nature has let rip today. A tornado swept through West Auckland this afternoon.

Three confirmed dead, seven hospitalised , some with serious injuries.

Lots of people are unable to return to their houses and are going into a shelter for tonight.

A very sad day for a lot of people..

I live quite a way south of the city and we had very heavy rain, thunder and lightening, we got off lightly.

RIP to those who lost their lives today.
