115 earthquake victims are listed below from the original work.
All the victims listed below are confirmed to be among the victims.
Instead of making 4 different lists based on official and other sources, we introduced 1 list based on trusted sources in New Zealand and in other parts of the world.

A lot of the victims are coming from everywhere in the world (see below). We call upon the Tourism operators worldwide to inform their clients on EARTHQUAKE PREPAREDNESS. We will be happy to support you.
