John Key warns of New Zealands's 'greatest tragedy'

NEW ZEALAND Prime Minister John Key warned the country may be facing its greatest tragedy as the death toll from this week's earthquake surged to 145.
Key said Tuesday's tremor, which toppled office buildings and rained debris on busy Christchurch streets, “may be New Zealand's single most tragic event”, outstripping a 1931 quake which killed 256.

Entire blocks will have to be razed after the catastrophe, which left up to a third of the city centre facing demolition along with parts of outlying suburbs, and cut power and water supplies to most of the 390,000 population.
