Emergency services in Morocco are still searching through the rubble in a race to save survivors after Saturday's devastating magnitude 6.8 earthquake.

More than 2,100 people have been confirmed dead, but that number is expected to rise.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade say at least 25 New Zealanders are registered on the Safe Travel website as being in Morocco.

NZ Herald Travel writer, Sarah Pollok, is among them .

She told Charlie Dreaver she had just finished a seven day media trip around the Atlas Mountains when the earthquake hit.
