The search continues for survivors in Christchurch, New Zealand. Christchurch resident Jill Coping spoke to KBND News Thursday afternoon while fighting a traffic jam trying to return to her home on the outskirts of the city, searchers are still trying to find survivors buried in the rubble. “They are hoping to, they haven't found a body for forty hours now.” Coping says it's still unsettling to live in the city: “And every time, it's the aftershocks that really hit you. The big shakes that are really teriffying. Overnight we didn't dare stay in the house, we slept in the car. In the middle of the night everything starts to shake, rattle and roll and you have to run outside because you think it's going to fall all around you.” Copping says officials don't know if they are going to re-build the older structures because of the danger of more quakes.   However she says people are helping. One resident has a spring that has erupted in his back yard and he is inviting anyone who needs to come by to get fresh water to help themselves. Hundreds are still missing and 75 are confirmed dead.
