Okay, After taking a five-minute break from politics, I found this rather odd story. This video showing stranded cows is astounding for those who haven't ever seen the physical effects of an earthquake.
Cows stranded by earthquake
Several cows are stranded on a beautiful, grassy, newly created quasi-mountain top where the land fell around it. One can only imagine the fear of these animals.
A massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit parts of New Zealand this weekend.
New Zealand's prime minister said two people have been killed after a 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Sunday just north of Christchurch — the city devastated by a deadly 2011 temblor.
Prime Minister John Key warned that the death toll could rise as rescue workers search isolated parts of the country.
"We've had very limited communications there because they've been cut off, so we've been working through police comms during the night," he said. "We also want to thank everyone for the response that's been going on."
