New Zealand newspaper trying to cope with eartqhquake

Fairfax Media's daily newspaper in Christchurch The Press based in Cathedral Square, has been affected by today's earthquake. Allen Williams CEO Fairfax Media NZ has said late this afternoon "our priority is our staff and their families in making sure that they are safe and that we support them in every way we can. Most of The Press team have gone home to be with their families. However this afternoon we had four staff members who remained trapped in the building that has been badly damaged. Two have since been located and rescued and we continue to work with emergency services to free our remaining staff". The Press is publishing tomorrow and has a team of reporters, photographers and editors - from Christchurch and other Fairfax regions - working to cover news of the earthquake from our Logistics Drive printing plant facility near the airport which remains operational.
