KBND news is hearing estimates from New Zealand that up to 200 people could have been killed in Tuesday’s earthquake. The official death toll now stands at 65 but more than 300 are still missing. Christchurch resident Gene Ward talked to us by Skype. He crouched in a building and ran outside after the quake: “When I rushed out of the building, people were screaming. You could hear the glass shattering; people were running and covering their heads. You could hear brick and grass falling down, and people were panicking and running.”  Ward says the military has shut the entire city down and is trying to keep people out. There have been a dozen after shocks with the highest at 4.7 on the Richter scale. The initial quake at 1 pm Tuesday was measured at 6.5 on the Richter scale. The United States and Australia have sent teams in to help rescue victims. Police say there is incredible carnage in the city and in places bodies litter the streets.
